PREFACE.    I2t1i03 


^ 


Nothing  in  this  world  is  more  commendable  than  to 

perpetuate  the   good  deeds   of  those   who  have  passed 

away;  to  know  the  part  they  have  taken  in  the  nation's 

history,  the  sacrifices  they  have  made  of  life  and  trea- 

^  sure  in  the  building  and  sustaining  of  the  state  and.  the 

\:^  cause  of  civilization.     Such  knowledge  of  one's  forebears 

S^  stimulates  us  to  better  and  greater  work  and  purer  and 

;^  better  lives.     Those  who  have  studied  the  genealogy  of 

-w  families  well    know  that  very  few  families    are    always 

n;\  great  and  that  nearly  all  families  are  sometimes  great. 

We  hope  and  trust  that  this  work  will  tend  to  strengthen 

the    ties  of  kinship    that  should    always  exist    between 

both  families  and  nations. 

The  record  of  public  services  of  the  family  noted  in 
this  book  is  given  with  no  partiality  so  far  as  the 
authors  have  knowledge  of  such  services.  The  widely 
scattered  survivors  could  not  all  be  reached  promptly 
and  did  not  respond  very  promptly — at  times  not  at  all — 
and  we  have  done  the  best  we  could  with  the  data  avail- 
able; and  while  we  feel  that  it  should  be  better  we  be- 
lieve that  it  is  good. 

The  work  of  compiling  the  family  genealogy  was 
begun  several  years  ago  by  Albert  Thompson  (No.  695), 
of  Philadelphia,  son  of  John  Praul  and  Lydia  (Knipe) 
Thompson,  and  up  to  the  time  of  his  death  he  devoted 
much  time  to  the  work  of  tracing  out  the  descendants 
of  Elizabeth  (McGraudy)  Thompson  and  of  John  Wil- 
son, the  Scotch  progenitors  of  the  two  families  under 
consideration  and  gathering  together  in  annual  reunions 
the  surviving  descendants.  After  a  lapse  of  several 
years  the  work  was  resumed  by  R.  Thompson  Engart, 
Howard  Thompson,  Caroline  McClusky  and  Elizabeth 
Pettit  and  a  committee  was  appointed  at  one  of  the 
family  reunions  to  get  the  manuscript  collections  into 
tangible  shape.  This  committee  finally  decided  to 
place  the  manuscript  in  the  hands  of  Warren  S.  Ely,  of 
Doylestown,    Penna.,    Librarian  and    Curator     of     the 


III 


Bucks  County  Historical  Society,  to  amplify  in  the 
matter  of  personal  data  of  the  early  members  of  the 
family  and  to  edit  and  transcribe  the  whole  data  for 
publication.  With  the  loyal  assistance  of  Mrs.  Lydia 
M.  E.  Thompson,  Secretary  of  the  association,  and  other 
members  of  the  family,  the  matter  was  gotten  into  shape, 
and  is  now  published  and  submitted  to  the  subscribers

EDITORIAL  COMMENT. 


When  the  mss.  of  the  genealogical  data  collected  and 
compiled  by  the  family  association  was  turned  over  to  me 
I  was  amazed  at  its  completeness  in  the  matter  of  dates. 
There  was,  however,  a  great  dearth  of  personal  data  in  re- 
lation to  the  migrations  of  the  different  branches  of  the 
family  and  in  most  cases  absolutely  no  personal  history — 
not  even  their  residence  was  given.  Realizing  that  it  was 
necessary  to  give  the  descendants  some  glimpse  of  the 
lives  lived  by  their  forbears,  in  order  to  make  the  book 
an  interesting  one,  my  first  effort  was  to  secure  some  per- 
sonal data  in  reference  to  each  individual. 

The  wide  range  of  territory  to  be  covered  made  this 
task  a  difficult  one,  and  the  result  is  not  all  that  we  might 
desire.  Appeals  to  the  present  representatives  in  differ- 
ent states  for  personal  data  of  their  immediate  ancestors 
frequently  met  with  cordial  ansAvers  and  assistance,  but 
about  as  frequently  were  ignored.  However,  we  feel,  as 
the  publication  committee  have  above  stated,  "We  have 
done  the  best  we  could  *  *  *  and,  while  we  feel  it  should 
be  better,  we  believe  it  is  good,"  and  tru.st  that  what  we 
have  been  able  to  furnish  in  the  way  of  family  history, 
may  be  well  received  and  cherished  by  the  descendants  of 
the  worthy  people  whose  lives  are  herein  chronicled.

THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 


THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 


INTRODUCTORY. 


For  the  earliest  record  of  the  Wilson  family  we  are 
indebted  to  Mr.  Gordon  Fraser,  of  Wigtown,  Scotland, 
Author  of  Historical  and  Descriptive  Sketches  of  the 
Royal  Burgh  of  Wigtown,  Scotland. 

In  his  description  of  the  Churchyard  of  Wigtown,  and 
in  speaking  of  the  graves  of  the  Martyrs  he  says : 
Though  "not  fortified  either  with  the  courage,  or  the 
gray  mare  of  Tam  O'Shanter,"  (Referring  to  Sheriff 
Napier's  "Case  for  the  Crown,"  page  139,  it  seems  that 
Napier  tried  to  prove  that  these  women  never  suffered 
Martyrdom,  but  were  reprieved.)  We  are  not  afraid  to 
draw  near  reverently  to  the  objects  which  possess  by  far 
the  greatest  interest  in  the  Churchyard,  namely,  the 
Martyr's  Gravestones. 

They  stand  a  little  to  the  north  of  the  old  ruined 
Church. 

Formerly  they  were  placed  close  to  the  north  wall  of 
the  old  Church — the  bodies  of  the  Martyrs  having 
probably  been  interred  as  indicating  that  they  were 
considered  criminals,  but  when  the  Church  was  in  course 
of  being  taken  down,  the  tombstones  were  removed,  for 
their  safety,  a  few  yards  in  a  northerly  direction  where 
they  now  stand. 

The  first  thing  that  strikes  the  visitor  is  the  antiquated 
style  of  lettering,  on  these  stones,  being  most  undoubt- 
edly that  of  the  period  of  the  Revolution,  as  it  is  evident 
by  a  comparison  with  other  stones  of  the  same  era.  All 
the  letters  are  capitals,  and  in  the  antique  connected 
method. 

The  largest  of  three  stones  is  that  which  commemo- 
rates the  Martyrdom  of  Margaret  Wilson.  It  is  a  thin, 
flat  stone  resting   upon  four    pillars  about  a  foot  high.

The  exact  orthography  and  position  of  the  words  in- 
scribed we  have  copied  from  a  photograph  obtained  by 
Lieut.  J.  H.  Simpson  as  taken  from  the  stone.

Margaret  McLachland,  an  aged  lady,  (sixty-three) 
and  Margaret  Wilson,  were  drowned  by  Sentence  of  the 
Public  authorities  in  the  waters  of  the  Bladnoch,  near 
Wigton,  on  the  11th  of  May,  1685,  because  they  refused 
to  forsake  the  principles  of  the  Scottish  Keformation, 
and  to  take  the  Government  Oath  abjuring  the  right 
of  the  people  to  resist  the  tyrrany  of  their  Rulers. 

Upon  the  eleventh  day  of  May,  1685,  these  two  women, 
Margaret  McLachland  and  Margaret  Wilson  were 
brought  forth  to  execution. 

They  did  put  the  old  woman  first  into  the  water,  and 
when  the  water  was  overflowing  her  asked  Margaret 
Wilson  what  she  thought  of  her  in  that  case :  She 
answered,  what  do  I  see  but  Christ  wrestling  there; 
Think  ye  that  we  are  the  sufferers?  No,  it  is  Christ  in 
us  for  He  sends  none  a  warfare  on  their  own  charges. 
Margaret  Wilson  sang  Psalm  XXV  from  the  7th  verse, 
read  the  eighth  chapter  of  the  Epistle  to  the  Romans, 
and  did  pray,  and  then  the  water  covered  her.  But 
before  her  breath  was  quite  gone  they  pulled  her  up  and 
held  her  till  she  could  speak,  and  then  asked  her  if  she 


INTRODUCTORY.  3 

would  'pray  for  the  king.  She  answered  that  she 
wished  the  salvation  of  all  men  but  the  damnation  of 
none.  Some  of  her  relations  being  on  the  place  cried 
out,  she  is  willing  to  conform,  being  desirous  to  save  her 
life  at  any  rate,  upon  which  Major  "Winram  offered  the 
oath  of  abjuration  to  her,  either  to  swear  it  or  return  to 
the  waters.  She  refused  it  saying,  ''I  will  not.  I  am 
one  of  Christ's  children,  let  me  go."  And  then  they  re- 
turned her  into  the  water  where  she  finished  her  war- 
fare, being  a  virgin  Martyr  of  eighteen  years  of  age, 
suffering  death  for  her  refusing  to  swear  the  oath  of 
abjuration  and  hear  the  curates.

THE  COVENANTERS. 

By  Elizabeth  Oaks  Smith. 

(Two  women,  Margaret  Maclachlin  and  Margaret  "Wil- 
son, the  former  an  aged  widow  and  the  latter  a  girl  of 
eighteen,  were  sentenced  by  James  Graham  of  Claver- 
house,  to  be  drowned  or  abjure  their  religion.  They 
refused  and  were  carried  to  a  spot  which  the  Solway 
overflows  twice  a  day,  and  were  fastened  to  stakes 
fixed  in  the  sand  between  high  and  low  water  mark. 

The  elder  sufferer  was  placed  near  the  advancing 
flood  in  the  hope  that  her  last  agonies  might  terrify  the 
younger  into  submission;  but  the  courage  of  the  sur- 
vivor was  sustained  by  an  enthusiasm  as  lofty  as  any 
that  is  recorded  in  martyrology.  She  prayed  and  sang 
verses  of  Psalms  till  the  waters  choked  her  voice.) 
Macauley's  History  of  England. 

Two  Margarets  sat  at  close  of  day 

With  knitting  sheath  at  side, 
And  sung  and  talked  as  women  may, 

And  listened  to  the  tide 
As  landward  turned  the  wild  Solway, 

And  from  his  caverns  cried. 

Up   Margery   sprang   with   bounding   feet, 

And  held  her  bright  hair  back 
And  listened:   for  a  horseman  fleet 

Nor  whip  nor  spur  was  lack — 
Came  dashing  through    the  foaming   sheet. 

Nor  pausing  on  his  track. 

He  cried,  "The  Graham's  at  the  ford — 
Thy  lover  lieth  dead— 


THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

Fly,  Fly,  from  Shot  and  Sword:" 
A  blood  red  scarf  aloft  he  spread, 

And  Margery,  at  the  word 
Knew  all  her  doom  was  said. 

The  Solway  roareth  hoarse  and  loud. 

The  moon  from  out  the  wrack 
Has  thrust  aside  the  murky  cloud. 

And  gleams  of  steel  flings  back; 
For  on  the  wet  sands  stands  a  crowd 

That  makes  the  night  more  black. 

The  Solway  heaves  his  briny  tide, 

And  there,  within  its  roar, 
The  Margarets  stand  them,  side  by  side, 

The  Claverhouse  before. 
Pale  is  the  matron,  pale  the  bride, 

But  steadfast  as  of  yore. 

With  scoffing  jest  and  smiling  lip, 

The  Graham  bent  his  head, 
And  sat  his  horse  with  hands  on  hip; 

"Repeat  the  prayer,"  he  said, 
"I,  fain  those  pretty  lips  would  sip 

Were  I  not  soldier  bred." 

"Now  God  thee  save  from  deadly  sin:" 

The  aged  matron  spoke, 
"Not  e'en  a  worthless  life  to  win 

Can  covenant  be  broke, 
We  bow  unto  the  truth  within. 

And  know  no  other  yoke. 

O  daughter  Margery:  fear  thee  not, 

The  pang  will  soon  be  o'er, 
O,  steadfast  child:    a  glorious  lot 

To  die  amid  this  roar 
Remembering  Christ,  who  for  us  wrought 

Through  pangs  a  thousand  more." 

The  Solway  fiercer  breaks  and  roars. 

The  cold  moon  shineth  clear. 
And  onward  as  the  Solway  pours, 

His  voice  is  drowned,  to  hear 
A  holy   hymn  along  his   shores, 

As  from  another  sphere. 

The  moon  looked  down  where  mid  the  sea 
Old  Margaret's  white  hair  shone. 

The  moon  looked  down  where  fair  and  free 
Sweet  Margery's  locks  are  strown: 

And  strong  men  tremble,  haunch  and  knee, 
To  hear  the  waters  moan. 

But  Graham  sat  his  champing  steed, 
That  pawed  the  oozy  shore. 


INTEODUCTORY.  5 

And  saw  the  billows  in  their  greed 

Heave  landward  more  and  more, 
And  whitened  hair  and   dark  sea-weed 

Tell  that  the  pang  is  o'er. 

Nor  moved  he  lip,  nor  moved  he  hand, 

As  higher,  higher  grew 
The   raging  waters  to  the   stand, 

And  back  his  horse  he  drew. 
While  Margery's  voice  exultant,  grand, 

Swelled  all  the  turmoil  through. 

The  Solway  roars  at  turn  of  tide 

A  thousand  years  the  same; 
The  Solway  to  the  cold  moon  cried 

A  deed  too  black  to  name, 
On  that  dread  night  the  Margarets  died 

Staked  where  the  low  tide  came. 

Ere  flood  of  tide,  aghast  men  note 

The    Solway   sweeping  on. 
Upon  his  breast  no  speck  nor  mote 

To  tell  what  hath  been  done, 
'  A  wild   sea-bird,  with  open  throat, 

Sails  over  it  alone. 

Two  ghastly  shapes,  at  ebb  of  tide, 

Rise  slowly  to  the  sight. 
And  pitying  sea-weeds  strive  to  hide 

The  work  of  yester-night. 
Ah:    Sea  and  earth  such  wrongs  must  bide, 

"Wrongs  for  great  God  to  right. 

The  following  is  the  account  of  the  martyrdom  of 
these  individiTals  as  given  by  Woodrow  in  his  History  of 
the  Suffering  of  the  Church  of  Scotland,  and  based  upon 
the  records  of  the  local  Church  Courts: — 

"Upon  the  11th  of  May  we  meet  with  the  barborous 
and  wicked  execution  of  two  excellent  women  near  Wig- 
ton,  Margaret  McLauchlan  and  Margaret  "Wilson.  His- 
tory scarce  affords  a  parallel  to  this  in  all  its  circum- 
stances, and  therefore  I  shall  give  it  at  the  greater 
length,  and  the  rather,  because  the  Advocates  for  the 
cruelty  of  this  period,  and  our  Jacobites,  have  the  impu- 
dence, some  of  them  to  deny,  and  others  to  extenuate 
this  matter  of  fact,  which  can  be  fully  evidenced  by 
many  living  witnesses.  And  I  shall  mostly  give  my  nar- 
rative of  it  from  an  account  I  have  from  the  Rev.  Mr. 
Rowan,  now  with  the  Lord,  late  minister  of  Penningham 
where  Margaret  Wilson  lived,  who  was  at  pains  to  have 
its  circumstances  fully  vouched  by  witnesses,  whose  at- 
testations are  in  my  hands;  and  I  shall  add,  to  make  the 
account  more  full,  the  sufferings  of  the  said  Margaret's

relations,  though  not  unto  death,  as  coming  in  natively 
enough  here,  and  what  will  hand  me  in  to  what  I  have 
most  in  view. 

"Gilbert  Wilson,  father  of  the  said  Margaret,  lived  in 
Glenveruoch,  belonging  to  the  laird  of  Castle  Stewart, 
in  the  Parish  of  Penningham,  and  Shire  of  Wigton,  and 
was  every  way  conform  to  Episcopacy :  and  his  wife, 
without  anything  to  be  objected  against  her,  as  to  her 
regularity.  They  were  in  good  circumstances  as  to  the 
world,  and  had  a  great  stock  upon  a  good  ground,  and 
therefore  were  the  fitter  prey  for  the  persecutors,  if  they 
could  reach  them. 

"Their  children,  to  be  sure,  not  from  their  education, 
but  a  better  principle,  would  by  no  means  conform,  or 
hear  the  episcopal  incumbent.  This  was  a  good  handle 
to  the  persecutors ;  so  they  were  searched  for  but  fled  to 
the  hills,  bogs  and  caves,  though  they  were  scarce  of  the 
age  that  made  them  obnoxious  to  the  law.  Meanwhile 
their  parents  are  charged  at  the  highest  peril  not  to 
harbour  them,  supply  them,  or  speak  to  them,  or  see 
them  without  informing  against  them,  that  they  might 
be  taken,  and  their  father  was  fined  for  his  children's 
alleged  irregularities  and  opinions,  which  he  had  no 
share  in,  and  harrassed  by  frequent  quarterings  of  the 
soldiers,  sometimes  an  hundred  of  them  upon  him  at 
once,  who  lived  at  discretion,  upon  anything  in  the 
house  or  field  belonging  to  him. 

"Thus  troubles  continuing  upon  him  for  some  years 
together,  with  his  attendance  upon  courts  at  Wigton 
almost  once  a  week,  thirteen  miles  distant  from  his 
house,  his  going  to  Edinburg,  and  other  harrassings, 
brought  him  under  exceeding  great  losses.  As  a  modest 
calculation  they  were  about  five  thousand  marks,  and 
all  for  no  action  or  principle  of  his  own,  for  he  was  en- 
tirely conformist.  He  died  some  six  or  eight  years  ago 
in  great  poverty,  though  one  of  the  most  substantial 
countrymen  in  that  country.  And  his  wife  (1711)  lives, 
a  very  aged  widow,  upon  the  charity  of  friends.  His 
son,  Thomas  AVilson,  a  youth  of  sixteen  years  of  age, 
this  February  1685,  was  forced  to  the  mountains  and 
continued  wandering  till  the  revolution,  at  which  time  he 
went  to  the  army  and  bore  arms  under  King  William  in 
Flanders,  and  after  that  in  the  Castle  of  Edinburg. 

"He  never  had  a  farthing  from  his  parents  to  enter 
that  ground  which  they  possessed,  but  having  got    to-

gether  somewhat  by  his  own  industry,  lives  now  in  his 
father's  room  and  is  ready  to  attest  all  I  am  writing. 

"It  is  Gilbert's  two  daughters  who  fell  into  the 
hands  of  the  persecutors,  Margaret  Wilson  of  eighteen 
years  of  age,  and  Agnes  Wilson,  a  child  not  thirteen 
years,  that  have  led  me  to  this  account.  Agnes,  the 
youngest,  was  condemned  with  her  sister  by  those  merci- 
less judges,  but  her  father  obtained  a  liberation  from 
prison,  under  a  bond  of  100  pounds  sterling  to  present 
her  when  called.  However  Gilbert  had  to  go  to  Edinburg 
before  she  was  let  out ;  but  to  all  onlookers  and  pos- 
terity, it  will  remain  an  unaccountable  thing  to  sentence 
a  child  of  thirteen  years  to  death,  for  not  hearing  and 
not  swearing.  In  the  beginning  of  this  year,  those  two 
sisters  for  sometime  were  obliged  to  abscond  and  wander 
through  Carrick,  Galloway  and  Nithsdale  with  their 
brothers  and  some  others. 

"After  the  universal  severities  slackened  a  little  at 
King  Charles  death,  the  two  sisters  ventured  to  go  to 
Wigton  to  see  some  of  their  suffering  acquaintances 
there,  particularly  Margaret  McLauchlan,  of  whom  just 
now: 

"When  they  came  to  Wigton,  there  was  an  acquain- 
tance of  theirs,  Patrick  Stewart,  whom  they  took  to  be  a 
friend  and  well  wisher,  but  he  was  not  so  and  betrayed 
them ;  being  in  their  company  and  seeking  an  occasion 
against  them  he  proposed  drinking  the  king's  health, 
this  they  modestly  declined,  upon  which  he  went  out, 
informed  against  them,  and  brought  in  a  party  of  sol- 
diers, and  seized  them.  As  if  they  had  been  great  male- 
factors, they  were  put  in  the  thieves  hole  and  after  they 
had  been  there  some  time  they  were  removed  to  the  prison 
where  Margaret  McLauchlan  was,  whom  I  come  next  to 
give  some  account  of. 

"This  woman  was  about  sixty-three  years  of  age,  relict 
of  John  Mulligan,  carpenter,  a  tenant  in  the  parish  of 
Kirkinner,  in  the  Shire  of  Galloway,  in  the  farm  of 
Drumjargan,  belonging  to  Colonel  Vans  of  Barnbarroch: 
She  was  a  country  woman  of  more  than  ordinary  knowl- 
edge, discretion  and  prudence,  and  for  many  years  of 
singular  piety  and  devotion :  She  would  take  none  of  the 
oaths  now  pressed  upon  women  as  well  as  men :  neither 
would  she  desist  from  the  duties  she  took  to  be  incum- 
bent   upon    her,    hearing    Presbyterian    ministers    when 


8  THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

Providence  gave  opportunity,  and  joining  with  her 
Christian  friends  and  acquaintances  in  prayer,  and 
supplying  her  relations  and  acquaintances  when  in 
straits,  though  persecuted.  It  is  a  jest  to  suppose  her 
guilty  of  rising  in  arms  and  rebellion,  though  indeed  it 
was  a  part  of  her  indictment  which  she  got  in  common 
form  now  used.  For  those  great  crimes  and  no  other, 
she  was  seized  some  while  ago  upon  the  Lord's  day,  when 
at  family  worship  in  her  own  house,  which  was  now  an 
ordinary  season  for  apprehending  honest  people. 

"She  was  imprisoned  after  she  had  suffered  much  in 
her  goods  and  crop  before  she  was  apprehended.  In 
prison  she  was  very  roughly  dealt  with,  and  had  neither 
fire  nor  bed  to  lie  upon,  and  had  very  little  allowed  her 
to  live  on. 

"Jointly  with  Margaret  McLaughlan  or  McLauchlison 
these  two  young  sisters  after  many  months  were  taken 
to  corrupt  them,  and  make  them  swear  the  oath  now  im- 
posed, which  they  steadily  refused,  were  brought  to 
their  trial  before  the  laird  of  Lagg,  Colonel  David  Gra- 
ham, Sheriff,  Major  Windrum,  Captain  Strachan,  and 
Provost  Cultrain,  who  gave  all  the  three  an  indictment 
for  rebellion  at  Bothwell  Bridge,  Ayr's  IMoss  and 
being  present  at  twenty  field  conventicles.  No  matter 
how  false  and  caluminous  poor  peoples'  indictments 
were.  None  of  the  pannels  had  ever  been  within  many 
miles  of  Bothwell  or  Ayr's  Moss;  Agnes  Wilson  could  be 
but  eight  years  of  age  at  Ayr's  Moss,  and  her  sister  but 
about  twelve  or  thirteen,  and  it  was  impossible  they 
could  have  any  access  to  those  risings. 

"Margaret  McLauchlan  was  as  free  as  they  were.  All 
the  three  refused  the  abjuration  oath,  and  it  was  unac- 
countable it  should  be  put  to  one  of  them.  The  assize 
bring  them  in  guilty,  and  the  judges  pronounce  their 
sentence ;  that  upon  the  11th  inst.  all  the  three  should  be 
tied  to  stakes  fixed  within  the  flood-mark  in  the  water  of 
the  Bladnoch,  near  Wigton,  where  the  sea  flows  at  high 
water,  there  to  be  drowned.  We  have  seen  that  Agnes 
Wilson  was  got  out  by  her  father  upon  a  bond  of  an 
hundred  pounds  sterling  which  I  hear,  upon  her  non- 
production,  was  likewise  exacted. 

"Margaret  Wilson's  friends  used  all  means  to  prevail 
with  her  to  take  the  abjuration  oath,  and  to  engage  to 


INTRODUCTORY.  9 

hear  the  curate,  but  she  stood  fast  in  her  integrity  and 
would  not  be  shaken. 

"They  received  their  sentence  with  a  great  deal  of 
composure,  and  cheerful  countenance,  reckoning  it  their 
honour  to  suffer  for  Christ  and  his  truth.  During  her 
imprisonment  Margaret  Wilson  wrote  a  large  letter  to 
her  relations,  full  of  a  deep  and  affecting  sense  of 
God's  love  to  her  soul,  and  an  entire  resignation  to  the 
Lord's  disposal.  She  likewise  added  a  vindication  of  her 
refusing  to  save  her  life  by  taking  the  abjuration  and 
engaging  to  conformity;  against  both  she  gives  argu- 
ments with  a  solidity  and  judgment  far  above  one  of  her 
years  and  education. 

"The  barbarous  sentence  was  executed  the  foresaid 
day,  May  11th  and  the  two  women  were  brought  from 
"Wigton,  with  a  numerous  crowd  of  spectators  to  so  ex- 
traordinary an  execution.  Major  Windram  with  some 
soldiers  guarded  them  to  the  place  of  execution.  The 
old  woman's  stake  was  a  good  way  in  beyond  the  other, 
and  she  was  first  despatched  in  order  to  terrify  the 
other  to  a  compliance  with  such  oaths  and  conditions  as 
they  required,  but  in  vain,  for  she  adhered  to  her  prin- 
ciples with  an  unshaken  steadfastness.  When  the  water 
was  overflowing  her  fellow-martyr  some  about  Margaret 
Wilson  asked  her  what  she  thought  of  the  other  now 
strugglin  with  pangs  of  death,  she  answered.  'What 
do  I  see  but  Christ,  in  one  of  his  members,  wrestling 
there.  Think  you  that  we  are  the  sufferers?  No,  it  is 
Christ  in  us,  for  he  sends  none  a  warfare  upon  their  own 
charges.' 

"When  Margaret  Wilson  was  at  the  stake,  she  sang 
the  25th  Psalm  from  verse  7th  downward  a  good  way, 
and  read  the  8th  Chapter  to  the  Romans  with  a  great 
deal  of  cheerfulness  and  then  prayed.  While  at  prayer 
the  water  covered  her,  but  before  she  was  quite  dead, 
they  pulled  her  up,  and  held  her  out  of  the  water  till 
she  was  recovered  and  able  to  speak,  and  then  by  Major 
Windram 's  orders  she  was  asked  if  she  would  pray  for 
the  king.  She  answered,  she  wished  the  salvation  of 
all  men  and  the  damnation  of  none ;  one  deeply  affected 
with  the  death  of  the  other,  and  her  case,  said — 'Dear 
Margaret,  say  God  save  the  King,  say  God  save  the  King. ' 
'God  save  him  if  he  will,  for  it  is  his  salvation  I  desire.' 
Whereupon  sume  of  her  relation  near  by,  desirous  to 
have  her  life  spared    if  possible,  called    out    to  Major 


10  THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

Windram,  'Sir,  she  hath  said  it,  she  hath  said  it,'  where- 
upon the  Major  came  near  and  offered  her  the  abjura- 
tion, charging  her  instantly  to  swear  it,  otherwise  return 
to  the  water. 

"Most  deliberately  she  refused  and  said,  'I  will  not.  I 
am  one  of  Christ's  children,  let  me  go.'  Upon  which 
she  was  thrust  down  again  into  the  water,  where  she 
finished  her  course  with  joy.  She  died  a  virgin-martyr 
about  eighteen  years  of  age,  and  both  of  them  suffered 
precisely  upon  refusing  conformity,  and  the  abjuration 
oath,  and  were  evidently  innocent  of  anything  worthy  of 
death,  and  since  properly  they  suffered  upon  refusing 
the  abjuration,  for  refusing  of  which  such  multitudes 
were  cut  off  in  the  fields  with  less  ceremony,  and  at  the 
time  when  these  murders  were  so  common,  I  have 
brought  them  in  here. 

"  It  is  of  more  importance  to  observe,  that  in  the  coun- 
cil registers,  since  I  wrote  what  is  above,  I  find  what  fol- 
lows : 

"  'April  last,  Margaret  Wilson  and  Margaret  Mc- 
Lauchlison,  under  sentence  of  death  pronounced  by  the 

justices,  are  continued  till and  the  lords  of 

his  Majesty's  privy  council  recommend  it  to  the  secre- 
taries to  procure  their  remission.' 

"The  day  to  which  they  are  reprieved  is  blank  in  the 
records;  but  I  may  safely  suppose  it  would  be  for  a 
longer  day  than  the  11th  of  May,  there  being  scarcely 
time  betwixt  the  30th  of  April  and  that,  to  get  a  return 
from  the  secretaries.  Indeed  at  this  time,  a  recom- 
mendation from  the  council  for  a  remission,  was  looked 
on  as  a  material  pardon,  and  if  I  may  conjecture,  Gilbert 
Wilson,  when  as  we  heard,  after  the  sentence  upon  all  the 
three,  made  an  application  at  Edinburgh,  seems  to  have 
prevailed  as  to  all  three,  and  the  case  was  extremely 
favorable.  If  matters  stand  thus  the  people  of  Wigton 
are  deeply  guilty  and  had  no  powers  for  what  they  did, 
and  the  death  of  these  persons  was  what  the  council 
ought  to  have  prosecuted  them  for. 

"As  we  have  seen,  a  younger  sister  of  Margaret  Wil- 
son, aged  about  thirteen,  was  tried  and  condemned  with 
the  other  two  females,  but  her  father  succeeded  in  bring- 
ing her  out  of  the  hands  of  her  captors  for  the  sum  of 
one  hundred  pounds  sterling. 

"It  would  appear  that  Margaret  McLauchlan,  while 


INTRODUCTORY.  11 

in  prison,  petitioned  the  Privy  Council  for  a  recall  of  the 
sentence  of  death  passed  upon  her,  and  that  Margaret 
Wilson's  father  exerted  himself  to  obtain  a  like  reversal 
of  the  sentence  against  his  daughter.  These  means  suc- 
ceeded so  far  as  to  obtain  from  the  Lords  of  the  Privy 
Council  a  reprieve  in  the  f oUov^ing  terms : 

"  'Edinburgh,  April  30th,  1685.  The  Lords  of  his 
Majesty's  Privy  Coiuicil  do  hereby  reprieve  the  execution 
of  the  sentence  of  death  pronounced  by  the  Justices 
against  Margaret  Wilson  and  Margaret  McLauchlison 
until day  of and  discharge  the  magis- 
trates of  Edinburgh  from  putting  of  the  said  sentence  to 
execution  against  them  until  the  foresaid  day;  and 
recommend  the  said  Margaret  Wilson  and  Margaret 
McLauchlison  to  the  Lord's  Secretaries  of  State,  to  in- 
terpose with  his  most  Sacred  Majesty  for  the  royal  re- 
mission to  them.' 

"From  the  fact  that  the  above  reprieve  mentions  that 
the  magistrates  of  Edinburg  were  discharged  from  ex- 
ecuting the  sentence  against  the  two  women,  Sheriff 
Napier  concludes  that  the  women  must  have  been  re- 
moved to  Edinburg.  It  is  more  reasonable  to  suppose, 
as  do  Dr.  Stewart  and  others,  that  the  inserting  of  the 
word  Edinburgh  in  the  document  was  a  clerical  error, 
and  the  word  Wigtown  was  intended  and  should  have 
been  written. 

There  is  another  very  probable — perhaps  the  most 
probable — explanation  of  this  little  difficulty,  and  it  is 
this,  the  word  Edinburgh  may  have  been  written  with  the 
design  of  frustrating  the  reprieve — of  killing  time,  and 
allowing,  by  the  confusion  it  may  be  supposed  to  have 
caused,  the  original  sentence  of  the  Commissionrs  at 
Wigtown  on  the  13th  of  April  to  be  carried  out. 

What  did  the  Privy  Council,  or  any  other  tools  of  the 
despotic,  tyrannical  and  persecuting  Government  of  the 
time  care  for  the  lives  of  two  obscure  females  immured 
in  the  prison  of  Wigtown:  No  more  than  they  eared  for 
the  preservation  of  the  records  of  their  bloody  doings, 
for  it  is  noteworthy  that  scarcely  a  shred  of  the  docu- 
ments of  their  sanguinary  transactions  has  come  down  to 
us.  Instead  of  the  advocates  of  the  non-martyrdom,  and 
of  the  Government  of  the  times,  boasting  of  the  meagre 
nature  of  documentary  evidence.  Supporting  the 
drovraing  of  the  two  women,  they  ought  rather    to  be 


12  THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

ashamed  to  buttress  up  a  government  which  itself  seemed 
so  ashamed  of  its  transactions  in  the  persecution  times 
that  it  took  scrupulous  care  that  no  record  of  their  mis- 
deeds should  survive  the  time  of  their  enaction. 

The  following,  which  appeared  in  the  Dumfries  Courier 
of  20th  March,  1681,  is  interesting: 

"I  Margaret  "Wilson  residing  in  Wigtown,  do  hereby 
solemnly  and  sincerely  declare,  that  the  late  Mr.  William 
McAdam,  of  Woodside,  called  upon  me  soon  after  I  came 
to  Wigtown,  and  read  over  the  annexed  paper,  and  said 
that  his  grandfather  gave  it  to  him,  saying  that  it  was 
a  copy  of  the  petition  written  by  himself,  signed  by  him 
and  others  and  forwarded  to  Parliament,  against  Sir 
Eobert  Grierson  of  Lagg  as  stated  therein,  and  that  his 
grandfather  was  married  to  one  of  the  Wilsons  of  Glen- 
vernock. ' ' 

"(Signed)   MAEGARET  WILSON." 

"Declared  before  me  at  Wigtown  this  14th  day  of 
March,  1681.  ''(Signed)  THOMAS  MURRAY. 

"Sheriff  Substitute  of  Wigtownshire." 

The  following  is  the  paper  referred  to  in  the  above 
declaration : 

"Memorandum  anent  ane  petition  to  be  presented  to 
the  Parliament  against  Sir  Robert  Grierson  of  Lagge. 

"Sir  Robert  having  in  the  late  evill  times  the  command 
of  several  troops  of  dragoons  and  being  Steuart  of  the 
Steuartry  of  Kirkcudbright,  does  without  any  process  or 
sentence  of  law,  cause  comite  severall  barbrous  and  in- 
human murders,  and  that  upon  no  other  account  but  up- 
on church  irregularities,  and  does  execute  his  fury 
against  this  poor  people  in  such  a  manner  as  cannot  well 
be  expressed.  A  particular  account  of  all  his  barbari- 
ties is  not  designed  in  this  place,  but  only  such  of  them 
as  are  most  notour  and  deserve  best  the  consideration  of 
the  honarble  states  of  Parliament,  which  are  as  follows : 

"1st.  Sir  Robert  after  he  had  apprehended  two  women 
to  wit,  Margaret  Lauchlison  and  Margaret  Wilson — upon 
no  other  account  than  for  alleged  nonconformity,  did 
without  any  conviction  or  sentence,  cause  bind  them  to 
a  stake  within  the  seamark  at  Wigtowne  till  the  flood  re- 
turning drowned  them  both,  and  that,  without  any  con- 
sideration of  the  age  of  the  one  or  the  youth  of  the  other, 


INTEODUCTORY.  13 

and  the  said  Margaret  Lauchlison  being  above  63  years 
of  age,  and  the  other  18  years  old.  This  was  done  in 
the  month  of  May,  1685." 

Incidents  in  connection  with  the  Martyrdom. 

The  following  are  from  Sir  Andrew  Agnew's  ad- 
mirable "History  of  the  Hereditary  Sheriffs  of  Gallo- 
way. ' ' 

CLEPPIE  BELL. 

"Tradition  is  strong,  clear  and  unvarying  upon  the 
chief  points  of  the  martyrdom  (of  the  two  women). 
There  are  many  episodes  attaching  to  the  tale,  which  no 
doubt  are  very  absurd,  yet  the  fact  of  their  being  firmly 
believed  in  an  age  when  miraculous  judgments  were  ex- 
pected to  follow  crime  is  an  additional  proof  of  the  no- 
toriety of  the  drowning  scene.  Of  such  are  the  follow- 
ing: One  of  the  constables  who  fastened  the  women  to 
the  stakes  was  called  'Bell.'  He  had  showed  himself  very 
unfeeling,  and  when  asked  afterwards  how  the  poor  crea- 
tures behaved  in  the  awful  struggle  when  the  sea  roared 
and  foamed  about  them,  answered  jocularly,  'O,  they 
just  clepped  roun'  the  stobs  like  partrons  and  aye  pray- 
ed.' Soon  after  Bell's  wife  was  brought  to  bed,  when 
the  howdie  exclaimed.  'The  baimie's  clepped,'  that  is, 
the  fingers  grew  firmly  together.  Another  child  was 
born,  and  yet  another,  and  another,  and  each  little 
wretch  in  turn  was  clepped,  the  most  incredulous  became 
convinced  of  the  reality  of  the  judgment.  There  are 
persons  in  Wigtown  still  alive,  who  will  assure  the  in- 
quirer that  they  have  seen  descendents  of  this  family 
afflicted  with  the  hereditary  deformity. 

"And  more,  we  have  been  gravely  assured  that  a  dis- 
tant female  relative  in  the  county,  in  whom  the  curse 
appeared  to  have  worn  out — she  not  being  clepped  her- 
self— removed  to  a  distant  parish,  and  there  not  long 
ago,  giving  birth  to  a  child,  was  greeted  by  the  same 
unwelcome  cry,  'The  baimie's  clepped.'  " 

(We  have  a  female  relative,  aged  92  years,  who  as- 
sures us  that  she  has  seen  three  of  "Cleppie  Bell's"  des- 
cendents in  the  district,  who  were  all  afflicted  with  this 
deformity  in  the  fingers  or  toes.  One  of  them  who  was 
a  ploughman,  clutched  the  handle  of  his  plough  with  his 
welded  fingers  on  the  one  side  and  his  thumb  on  the 
other.) 


14  THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

THE  TOWN  OFFICER'S  PUNISHMENT. 
A  similar  tradition  tells  that  another  town  officer,  a 
sergent,  who  was  an  active  party  at  the  execution,  help- 
ed to  raise  up  the  half-drowned  women  to  receive  a  use- 
less offer  of  the  test,  and  that  on  their  refusal  he  pressed 
their  heads  down  with  his  halbert,  crying  with  savage 
glee,  ''There,  tak'  anither  drink  o't,  my  hearties:"  He 
returned  safe  from  the  murderous  job,  but  troubled  by 
an  extraordinary  thirst,  he  drank,  but  his  thirst  was 
unquenchable.  If  going  on  an  errarnd,  his  unnatural 
craving  obliged  him  to  carry  a  huge  pitcher  on  his  back ; 
if  he  crossed  a  stream,  even  before  ribald  companions, 
he  was  irresistibly  impelled  to  kneel  down,  and,  like  the 
men  chosen  by  Gideon,  to  lap  water  like  a  dog.  Medicine 
was  tried  but  with  no  effect.  As  the  wretch  wondered 
about  the  country,  bearing  his  retributive  burden,  now 
turning  to  curse  a  group  of  urchins  who  would  follow  to 
mock  his  sufferings,  now  sprawling  to  moisten  his  swol- 
len tongue  in  the  filthy  gutter :  even  his  old  associates 
shrank  from  him  in  horror,  while  the  people,  who  had 
sympathized  with  his  poor  victims,  pointed  him  out  as 
the  example  of  a  man  who  had  directly  dared  the  ven- 
geance of  Providence,  and  whose  eternal  sufferings  had 
begun. 

FATE  OF  THE  INFORMER  ON  THE  MARTYRS. 

"The  name  of  the  man  (Patrick  Stuart)  by  whose  in- 
formation the  women  were  arrested  is  remembered,  and 
his  memory  execrated  still:  his  deseendents  are  reduced 
to  poverty:  not  long  since,  one  of  them,  getting  into  an 
altercation  with  a  person  in  Wigtown,  was  thus  taimted 
publicly, — "I  wudna  like  tae  hae  had  a  forbear  who  be- 
trayed the  martyrs;  I  wudna  be  com'd  o'  sic'  folk:'  " 

During  the  year  1858  the  people  of  Wigtown  erected 
a  monument  to  the  memory  of  the  Martyrs.  The  spot 
selected  was  the  Wind.vhill,  the  highest  point  of  the  hill 
on  which  the  town  stands.  It  is  a  handsome,  chaste- 
looking  obelisk,  terminating  in  a  cinerary  urn,  and  was 
erected  at  a  cost  of  200  pounds. 

The  foundation  stone  was  laid  by  James  Dodds,  Esq., 
Solicitor,  London,  in  the  presence  of  a  vast  crowd,  whom 


INTRODUCTORY.  15 

the  interesting  ceremony  had  drawn  together  from  the 
town  and  district. 

The  following  is  the  inscription  on  the  slab     of     the 
monument  facing  the  north  : 

This  Monument 
has  been   erected 
in  memory  of  the  noble  army  of  Martyrs  in 
Galloway  and   other  parts  of  Scotland,  by 
whom,   during   the   age   of  persecution   our 
Religion  and  Liberties,  as  now  established 
were  secured 
and 
as  a  lesson  to  posterity  never  to 
lose  or  abuse  those  glorious  privileges 
planted  by  their  labours,  rooted  in  their 
Sufferings,   and   watered   with   their  blood. 

On  the  west  tablet  we  read: 

A  general  desire  having  been  manifested  to 

commemorate  by  some  suitable  Monument  the 

Piety,   Constancy   and   Courage 

of  the   Scottish   Martyrs, 

especially  those  whose  ashes  repose 

in   the   Churchyard   of   Wigtown, 

a  Committee  of  Gentlemen  of  the  district 

was  appointed  to  carry  out  this  object; 

and  a  considerable  fund  being  raised 

by   public   subscription    and    otherwise, 

the  present  Monument  was   erected  in  the  year 

1858. 

The  south    side  repeats   the  inscription  on  the    tomb- 
stone of  Margaret  "Wilson  in  the  Churchyard. 

The  inscription  on  the  east  side  is : 

Margaret  Wilson,  aged   18,  daughter 

of  a  farmer  in  Glenvernock, 

and 

Margaret   McLauchlan,   aged  63,   tenant   in 

the  farm  of  Drumjargon,  both  in  this  County, 

were  drowned  by  sentence  of  the   public  authorities 

in  the  waters  of  Bladnoch,  near  this  place, 

on  the  11th  of  May  1685 

because  they  refused  to  forsake  the  principles 

of  the   Scottish   Reformation,   and   to   take  the 

Government  oath  abjuring  the  right  of  the 
people  to  resist  the  tyranny  of  their  rulers; 

also 

William    Johnston,   gardner,    and   John    Milroy, 

chapman  in  Fintilloch;  and  Gilbert  Walker, 

servant  in  Kirkila,  all  in  this  County,  were 

summarily  executed  in  the  town  of  Wigtown  in 

the  same  year  and  for  the  same  cause. 

The  following  poem,  entitled  "The  Two  Margarets"  is 
from  Dr.  Longmuir's  little  book. 


16  THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

What  Havock's  hounds  in   Scotland's   "killing  time," 
Deep  stained  her  heather  with  her  martyrs  blood; 

Then  social  worship  was  a  civil  crime, 
That  filled  the  dungeon,  and  abashed  the  flood. 

Two  lustrous   pearls   enrich  Immanuel's   crown, 
As  these  two  Margarets,  joined  the  martyr  train; 

What  though  a  tyrant's  tool  their  bodies  drown 
Better  they  die  than  Jesus  cease  to  reign. 

That  Widow  cleaves  to  Him  who  proved  her  stay. 
When  the  fond  arm  on  which  she  trusted  failed; 

That  Maiden,  budding  in  life's  dewy  May, 
Before  oppression's  frown  has  never  quailed. 

They  toss  the  corded  matron  to  the  tide. 
And  ruthless  halberts  bruise  her  bosom  faint; 

"What  see  I  there?"  the  martyr  maid  replied 
"But  Jesus  wrestling  in  His  faithful  Saint:" 

What  dreads  the  Crown  from  those  your  troopers  crush? 

What  fears  the  Court  from  female  age  and  youth? 
Will  Popish  power  in  Bladnech's  billows  hush 

The  claim  of  Freedom  and  the  voice  of  Truth? 

She  reads, — "No  terrors  that  our  path  beset. 
Shall  e'er  divide  us  from  our  Saviour's  love:" 

Then  sings,— "My  faults  of  youth  O  Lord,  forget, 
And  guide  the  lowly  to  Thy  home  above." 

The  rush  of  Solway  chokes  the  voice  of  praise. 
That  asks  in  triumph,  "Death,  where  is  they  sting?" 

Her  drooping  head  above  the  waves  they  raise. 
And  all  entreat  to  pray — God  save  the  King. 

"God  save  him,  if  He  will,"  she  meekly  sighs, 
"I  never  wished  my  fellow-creature  woe:" 

"She's  said  it,  sir,  she's  said  it:"  Friendship  cries, 
"Oh,  cut  the  cords  and  let  the  maiden  go!" 

The  captious  oath  resounds  in  Windram's  roar. 
That  bends  the   conscience   to  Oppression's   sway: 

"No!  let  his  child  to  Jesus'  bosom  soar:" 
A  plunge — and  Bladnoch  clasps  her  beauteous  clay. 

Matron  and  maid,  who  scorned  the  Tyrant's  cord, 
Your  blood-writ  names  on  hist'ry's  page  shall  beam; 

While   Scotland's   shield  resists  aggression's   sword. 
As   Solway's   flood   repels   the   Bladnoch's   stream. 

Scotland,  the  foe  no  more  a  lion  roars, 
And  slakes  his  savage  thirst  in  martyrs'  blood. 

But,  like  the  tide,  he   scales  thy  tranquil  shores. 
And  drowns  the  sleeper  in  con-uption's  flood. 


INTRODUCTORY.  17 

Hence  Sabbath  traffic  crowds  thine  iron  way; 

Incest  attempts  to  stain  thy  statute  book; 
Intemp'rance  staggers  in  the  light  of  day, 

And  unbelief  assumes  religion's  look. 

In  concluding  the  subject  of  the  Martyrs  the  author 
of  the  History  of  the  Royal  Burgh  of  Wigton  says:  "We 
would  take  occasion  to  say  that  it  is  a  great  pity  that 
their  grave  stones  should  be  without  a  railed  enclosure 
with  gate  attached.  The  spot  might  be  inexpensively  en- 
closed in  such  a  manner  and  have  flowers  to  adorn  it. 
Assuredly  these  stones  are  the  greatest  objects  of  inter- 
est in  the  Burgh  to  visitors ;  and  their  preservation  from 
injury  by  accident  or  otherwise  is  much  to  be  desired. 
That  they  are  worthy  of  such  care,  we  know  none  of  our 
readers  will  deny,  and  we  are  equally  sure  that  "Wigton- 
ians  both  at  home  and  abroad,  require  only  a  hint  in 
order  to  contribute  of  their  means  toward  the  protection 
of  our  dearest  local  treasures." 

THE   MAIDEN   MARTYR. 
In  Scotland. 

A  troop   of  soldiers  waited  at  the  door, 
A  crowd  of  people  gathered  in  the  street. 
Aloof  a  little  from  them  bared  sabres  gleamed 
And  flashed  into  their  faces.     Then  the  door 
Was  opened,  and  two  women  meekly  stepped 
Into  the  sunshine  of  the  sweet  May  noon 
Out  of  the  prison.     One  was  weak  and  old 
A  woman  full  of  tears,  and  full  of  woes. 
The  other  was  a  maiden  in  her  morn. 
And  they  were  one  in  name,  and  one  in  faith 
Mother  and  daughter  in  the  bond  of  Christ, 
That  bound  them  closer  than  the  ties  of  blood. 

The  troop  moved  on,  and  down  the  sunny  street. 
The  people  followed  ever  falling  back 
As  in  their  faces  flashed  the  naked  blades 
But  in  the  midst  the  women  meekly  went. 
As  if  they  too,  were  walking,  side  by  side. 
Up  to   God's   house  on   some   still   Sabbath  morn 
Only  they  were  not  clad  for  Sabbath  day. 
But  as  they  went  about  their  daily  tasks. 
They  went  to  prison,  and  they  went  to  death 
Upon  their  Master's  service. 

On  the  shore 
The  troopers  halted,  all  the  shining  sands 
Lay   bare   and   glistening,   for  the  tide  had 
Drawn  back  to  its  fartherest  margin's  weedy  mark, 
And  each  succeeding  wave,  with  flash  and  curve 
That  seemed  to  mock  the  sabres  on  the  shore, 
Drew  nearer  by  a  handbreadth.    It  will  be 


18  THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 

A  long  day's  work  murmered  those  murderous  men 
As  they  slacked  rein.     The  leader  of  the  troops 
Dismounted,  and  the  people  passing  near 
Then  heard  the  pardon  proffered  with  the  oath 
Renouncing  and  abjuring  part  with  all 
The  prosecuted  covenated  folk. 
But  both  refused  the  oath,  because  they  said 
"Unless  with  Christ's  dear  servants  we  have  part, 
We  have  no  part  with  Him." 

On  this  they  took  the  elder  Margaret  and  led  her  out 

Over  the  sliding  sands,  the  weedy  sludge, 

The  pebly  snoals,  far  out,  and  fastened  her 

Unto  the  fartherest  stake,  already  reached 

By  every  rising  wave,  and  left  her  there: 

And  as  the  waves  crept  about  her  feet  she  prayed 

"That  He  would  firm  uphold  her  in  their  midst, 

Who  holds  them  in  the  hollow  of  His  hand." 


The  tide  flowed  in,  and  up  and  down  the  shore 
There  paced  the  provost  and  the  Laird  of  Lagg — 
Grim  Grierson — with  Windham  and  with  Graham: 
And  the  rude  soldiers  jesting  with  their  coarse  oaths 
As  in  the  midst  the  maiden  meekly  stood 
Waiting  her  doom,  delayed;   said  "she  would 
Turn  before  the  tide — seek  refuge  in  their  arms 
From  the  chill  woes."     But  ever  to  her  lips 
There  came  the  wondrous  words  of  life  and  peace: 
"If  God  be  for  us,  who  can  be  against?" 
"Who  shall  divide  us  from  the  love  of  Christ?" 
"Nor  height,  nor  depth,  nor  any  other  creature." 

From  the  crowd 
A  woman's  voice  cried  a  very  bitter  cry — 
"O   Margaret!    My   bonnie,   bonnie   Margaret 
Gie  in,  gie  in,  my  bairnie,  dinna  ye  dron 
Gie  in  and  tak'  the  oath." 
The  tide  flowed  in  and  so  wore  on  the  sunny 
Afternoon. 


And  every  fire  went  out  upon  the  hearth. 

And  not  a  meal  was  tasted  in  the  town  that  day. 

And  still  the  tide  was  flowing  in. 

Her  mother's   voice   yet   sounding   in   her  ear. 

Then  turned  young  Margaret,  face  toward  the  sea 

Where   something   white   was   floating — something 

White  as  the  sea-mew  that  stirs  upon  the  wave — 

But  as  she  looked  it  sank,  then  showed  again 

Then  disappeared,  and  round  the  shore 

And  stake  the  tide  stood  ankle  deep. 

Then  Grierson 
With  cursing  vowed  that  he  would  wait 
No  more,  and  to  the  stake  the  soldier  led  her 
Down,  and  tied  her  hands,  and  round  her 
Slender  waist  too  roughly  cast  the  rope,  for 
Windham  had  eased  it,  while  he  whispered 


INTRODUCTORY.  19 

In  her  ear,  "Come  take  the  test,  and  ye  are  free." 
And  one  cried,  Margaret,  say  but  God  save 
The  King" — "God  save  the  King  of  His  great  grace," 
She  answered,  but  the  oath  she  would  not  take. 


And  still  the  tide  flowed  in 
And  drove  the  people  back  and  silenced  them. 
The  tide  flowed  in,  and  rising  to  her  knees. 
She  sang  the  Psalm,  "To  Thee  I  lift  my  soul." 
The  tide  flowed  in,  and  rising  to  her  waist, 
To  Thee,  my  God,  I  lift  my  soul,  she  sang. 
The  tide  flowed  in  and  rising  to  her  throat 
She  sang  no  more,  but  lifted  up  her  face, 
And  there  was  glory  over  all  the  sky 
And  there  was  glory  over  all  the  sea 
A  flood  of  glory  and  the  lifted  face 
Swam  in  till  it  bowed  beneath  the  flood 
And  Scotland's  maiden  Martyr  went  to  God. 


THE  WILSON  FAMILY. 


FIRST  GENERATION. 

(1)  JOHN  WILSON,  whom  tradition  makes  the  an- 
cestor of  the  Wilson  family  from  Antrim,  Ireland,  which 
was  transplanted  to  Bucks  county  about  1730  or  1735, 
was  a  nephew  of  Gilbert  Wilson  mentioned  in  the  fore- 
going narrative. 

According  to  the  family  tradition,  John  Wilson  was  in 
the  employ  of  Gilbert  Kennedy,  Earl  of  Cassilis,  and 
clandestinely  married  the  daughter,  Isabelle  Kennedy, 
and  fled  with  her  to  County  Antrim,  Ireland,  a  few  miles 
east  or  southeast  of  the  town  of  Antrim.  Mrs.  Wilson 
was  invariably  known  as  Lady  Isabelle,  or  Isabelle  of 
Cassilis.  The  Wilson  family,  however,  was  an  armorial 
family  having  a  coat  of  arms  representing  a  shield  sur- 
mounted by  a  naked  white  hand  holding  a  dagger.  In 
the  background  was  a  half  moon  and  three  stars. 

The  family  cherished  traditions  of  the  bravery  and 
prowess  of  their  Scottish  forbears.  One  clearly  defined 
tradition  relates  that  upon  a  certain  occasion  when  a  ship 
driven  on  the  coast  was  in  danger  of  being  taken  by 
pirates  or  mutineers,  the  bravery  and  promptitude  of  the 
Wilsons  saved  the  vessel  and  all  on  board. 

Issue  of  John  and  Isabelle  (Kennedy)  Wilson.

22  THE  WILSON  FAIMILY. 

SECOND  GENERATION. 

(2)  JOHN  WILSON,  son  of  John  and  IsabeUe  (Ken- 
nedy) Wilson,  born  in  County  Antrim,  Ireland  about 
1710,  married  about  the  year  1735,  Jennet  Stinson,  of 
Four  Mile  Run,  County  Antrim,  and  with  her  emigrat- 
ed to  Pennsylvania,  and  settled  in  lower  Buckingham, 
Bucks  county.  The  exact  date  of  their  arrival  is  not 
known,  but  they  probably  came  with  the  Thompsons  and 
a  number  of  other  families  that  settled  in  Warwick, 
Buckingham,  Northampton  and  Newtown. 

On  April  7,  1737,  John  Wilson  secured  a  warrant  for 
125  acres  in  Buckingham  township,  along  the  line  of 
Wrightstown  toMoiship.  This  tract  was  originally  sur- 
veyed to  Andrew  Heath  and  was  so  marked  on  Cutler's 
resurvey  of  1703.  It  adjoined  on  the  southwest  the 
Lacey  farm  originally  surveyed  to  William  Perlet,  the 
father-in-law  of ^  William  Lacey,  the  founder  of  that 
noted  family,  and  on  the  northeast  abutted  on  the  Ed- 
ward West  tract  of  1000  acres  out  of  which  John  Wil- 
son's later  farm  was  surveyed.  The  tract  lies  nearly 
midway  between  the  present  villages  of  Wycombe  and 
Pineville,  and  is  now  owned  by  Warner  C.  Thompson. 
Here  John  Wilson  resided  for  a  number  of  years  but 
later  took  up  a  tract  partly  in  the  John  Reynolds  and 
partly  in  the  Edward  West  tract  about  a  mile  northeast 
of  his  first  residence.  Both  of  these  tracts  had  been  sur- 
veyed by  1700,  but  the  warrantees  never  appear  to  have 
claimed  or  settled  on  them  and  they  were  taken  up  in 
irregular  tracts  by  settlers,  mostly  Scotch-Irish  including 
the  Simpsons,  Samples,  Kellys  and  Smiths,  who  had  no 
title  but  possession.  After  they  had  resided  thereon  for 
near  half  a  century,  efforts  were  made  to  secure  patents 
and  this  resulted  in  the  case  of  the  Reynolds  Tract  in 
Escheat  proceedings  by  which  the  title  escheated  to  the 
state  and  patents  issued  to  the  original  settlers  thereon. 
In  the  case  of  the  settlers  on  the  West  tract,  however, 
they  resisted  an  escheat  on  the  ground  they  had  acquired 
title  bj^  adverse  possession.  A  small  portion  of  the 
Wilson  farm,  however,  he  purchased  of  Robert  Strettel, 
who  had  secured  a  patent  for  500  acres  in  the  southeast 
corner  of  the  West  tract. 

On  this  farm  of  one  hundred  and  seventy-five  acres, 
John  Wilson  lived  until  his  death  in  February  1767. 
Nothing  is  known  of  his  place  of  burial  or  his  age  or  the 
time  of  the  death  of  his  widow.     She  was  probably  of

(5)  JENNET  WILSON,  eldest  daughter  of  John  and 
Jennet  (Stinson)  Wilson  married  prior  to  1767,  Thomas 
Dougherty,  of  Northampton  township  of  whose  history 
little  is  known  except  that  he  was  a  farmer  in  North- 
ampton and  Buckingham  townships.  He  was  a  soldier 
in  the  Revolution  being  enrolled  under  Captain,  after- 
ward General,  John  Lacey,  in  1775  as  a  member  of  the 
Associated  Company  of  Buckingham,  (i)  He  is  taxed  for 
48  acres  of  land  in  Buckingham  1779  luitil  and  including 
the  year  of  his  death,  1784.  The  list  of  that  year  being 
in  the  nature  of  a  census  states  that  his  family  consisted 
of  fourteen  white  inhabitants. 

In  the  year  1785  the  property  is  assessed  to  Jennet 
Dougherty.  Thomas  Dougherty  died  intestate  in  Buck- 
ingham and  letters  of  Administration  were  granted  to  his 
widow.  Jennet  Dougherty,  October  4,  1784;  her  brother, 
John  Wilson,  and  brother-in-law,  William  Simpson,  be- 
coming her  sureties.  She  filed  her  first  account  in  De- 
cember 1785  in  the  Orphans'  Court  showing  a  balance  of 
upwards  of  fifty  pounds,  but  on  March  12,  1787,  peti- 
tioned the  Orphans'  Court  for  sale  of  the  forty-nine  acres 
in  Buckingham  of  which  her  husband  died  siezed  setting 
forth  that  the  personal  estate  was  not  sufficient  for  the 
payment  of  debts,  naming  among  the  creditors,  John

(6)  MARY  WILSON,  daughter  of  John  and  Jennet 
(Stinson)  Wilson,  bom  January  6,  1738,  in  Buckingham, 
Bucks  county,  Pennsylvania,  married  Gaun  McGraudy, 
bom  1736,  second  son  of  Samuel  McGraudy,  who  came 
from  the  north  of  Ireland  at  about  the  same  date  as  the 
Wilsons  and  Thompsons,  and  settled  first  in  Southamp- 
ton township,  where  he  was  living  January  9,  1753, 
when  a  tract  of  301  acres  of  land  in  AVarwick  adjoining 
the  Mearns  tract  was  conveyed  to  him  by  the  heirs  of 
George  Claj'-poole.  His  will  dated  at  Pensacola,  Province 
of  Florida,  July  31,  1765,  was  proved  at  Philadelphia, 
February  4,  1766.  It  devised  his  wife,  Margaret,  the  use 
of  the  house  she  now  lives  in  and  annuities  to  be  paid  by 
his  sons,  Robert,  Gaun  and  John,  to  whom  was  devised 
the  Warwick  plantation.  Samuel  probably  never  lived 
on  this  plantation ;  in  a  mortgage  executed  by  him  and 
his  wife,  March  15,  1757,  his  residence  is  given  as  South- 
ampton. 

Gaun  McGraudy  was  devised  the  western  end  of  the

plantation,  150  acres  in  Warwick  township  and  lived 
thereon  until  his  death  on  April  16,  1812,  at  the  age  of 
seventy-six  years.  He  was  a  soldier  in  the  Revolution, 
a  member  of  Warwick  Associators,  August  21,  1775. 
His  will  registered  at  Doylestown  in  Will  Book  No.  8,  p. 
235,  directs  that  his  real  estate  be  sold.  It  gives  a  libe- 
ral annuity  and  considerable  personal  property  to  his 
wife;  three  hundred  pounds  to  his  son  Robert,  "he  hav- 
ing been  with  me  and  worked  so  long  since  of  legal  age," 
and  the  residue  to  be  divided  between  his  seven  children, 
Jane,  Margaret,  Samuel,  John,  Robert,  Thomas  and  Isa- 
bella. No  mention  is  made  of  his  eldest  daughter, 
Agnes,  the  first  wife  of  Andrew  Meams.

what  was  long  known  as  the  Burroughs  farm  near  Fur- 
long. He  was  a  member  of  the  Warwick  Associated 
Company  August  21,  1775,  and  when  the  Bucks  County 
Committee  of  Safety  had  decided  to  engage  in  the  manu- 
facture of  gunpowder  he  offered  them  a  site  with  water 
power  on  his  farm.  The  title  of  the  farm  however  re-

(10)  JOHN  WILSON,  son  of  John  and  Jennet  (Stin- 
son)  Wilson,  born  March  13,  1745,  succeeded  to  the  Buck- 
ingham homestead  on  the  death  of  his  father  and  spent 
the  remainder  of  his  life  thereon.  He  was  Lieutenant  of 
the  Buckingham  Company  of  Associators  organized  Au- 
gust 21,  1775.  He  was  commissioned  Justice  of  the 
Peace  April  7,  1779,  and  regularly  recommissioned  until 
about  the  time  of  his  death.  He  did  a  large  amount  of 
business  as  attested  by  his  docket  now  in  the  possession 
of  the  Bucks  County  Historical  Society.  His  office  seems 
to  have  been  a  favorite  Gretna  Green  as  he  married 
several  hundred  couples  during  his  term  of  office.  He 
served  as  executor,  administrator,  trustee,  etc..  in  the 
settlement  of  a  great  number  of  estates  and  appears  to 
have  been  one  of  the  leading  men  in  the  community. 

He  married,  at  Newtown  Presbyterian  Church,  Febru- 
ary 9,  1773,  Mary  Simpson,  bom  in  Buckingham,  Bucks 
county,  Pennsylvania,  May  29,  1749,  daughter  of  William 
Simpson  and  Jane  his  wife.  He  died  July  14,  1811,  and 
his  wife  died  October  30,  1822.  Both  are  buried  at  New- 
town Presbyterian  Burying  Ground.

(11)  ISABELLA  WILSON,  daughter  of  John  and 
Jennet  (Stinson)  Wilson,  born  in  Buckingham,  Bucks 
county,  November  24,  1749,  died  there  September  5, 
1838.  She  married  in  1769,  William  Simpson,  born  1741, 
died  May  1,  1825.  The  following  sketch  of  Isabella 
(Wilson)  Simpson  is  taken  from  the  "Presbyterian"  of 
1838  and  was  written  by  S.  Studdiford. 

"She  was  a  native  of  Bucks  county,  Penna.,  and  died 
there  in  the  90th  year  of  her  age.  She  possessed  such 
qualities  of  both  the  head  and  the  heart,  as  rendered  her 
a  highly  useful  member  of  society.  The  constitution  of 
both  body  and  mind  was  vigorous  and  active,  her  mind 
well  improved  and  stored  with  useful  knowledge.  It 
could  with  truth  be  said  of  her  that  she  opened  her 
mouth  with  wisdom  and  in  her  tongue  was  the  law  of 
kindness.  She  was  congenial  with  both  the  young  and 
old,  and  it  was  her  pleasiu'e  to  contribute  to  the  welfare 
and  comfort  of  others.  In  youth  she  made  a  public  pro- 
fession of  religion.  The  Shorter  Catechism  was  so  fami- 
liar to  her  mind  that  she  could  repeat  the  whole  of  it 
without  reference  to  the  book.  She  was  a  great  reader 
of  good  books  and  although  she  often  said  her  mind  was 
like  a  sieve  her  memory  even  in  her  latter  years  was 
considered  unusually  retentive  of  what  she  read.  The 
biographies  of  Brainerd,  Buchanan  and  Henry  Martyn 
were  great  favorites  with  her. 

"Her  husband  when  a  child  frequently  saw  David 
Brainerd  and  heard  him  preach  at  the  forks  of  the  Dela- 
ware near  which  his  parents  lived  at  a  place  called  the 
Irish    settlement  (^).     He  distinctly    remembered    being 

(1)  This  settlement,  at  Bath,  Northampton  county, 
was  sort  of  an  overflow  of  the  settlement  at  Neshamlny.

Warwick  and  Warrington  located  there.

taken  to  meeting  by  his  mother  and  held  up  in  her  arms 
that  he  might  see  the  preacher  surrounded  by  his  Indian 
audience,  and  used  to  mention  as  a  circumstance  that 
particularly  impressed  him,  seeing  the  Indian  women 
weeping  around  the  man  of  God. 

"Mrs.  Simpson  had  the  opportunity  of  hearing  several 
of  the  most  eminent  preachers  of  the  Presbyterian  church 
of  that  day  and  could  describe  the  peculiar  qualities 
that  marked  the  preaching  of  some  of  them  with  great 
distinctness.  Among  those  of  whom  she  used  to  speak 
were  the  names  of  William  Tennent,  John  Blair  and  her 
pastor,  Mr,  Beatty.  Her  numerous  descendants  can  bear 
witness  to  her  fidelity,  and  the  interest  she  took  in  their 
welfare." 

William  Simpson  was  a  blacksmith  and  lived  for  a 
time  in  Buckingham,  and  also  some  years  in  lower  Sole- 
bury.  He  is  mentioned  in  the  settlement  of  the 
estate  of  John  Simpson,  of  lower  Solebury,  whose 
widow  Robert  Thompson  married,  and  is  supposed 
to  have  been  his  nephew  and  a  son  of  William 
Simpson,  Sr.,  of  Buckingham.  He  lived  for  many  years 
prior  to  his  death  on  a  farm  near  the  "Eagle"  in  Upper 
Makefield.  Both  William  Simpson,  Sr.,  and  William 
Simpson,  Jr.,  were  members  of  the  Associated  Company 
of  Buckingham  in  1775,  under  John  Lacy  as  Captain 
and  John  Wilson,  Lieutenant.  William,  Sr.,  was  later  a 
resident  of  Solebury  and  saw  active  service  under  Cap- 
tain Wall  and  his  successor  Captain  Thomas  of  the  Sole- 
bury Company.     He  died  May  1,  1825. 

He  and  his  wife  are  buried  at  Thompson  Memorial 
Church  in  Solebury.

His  residence  and  shop,  recently  torn  down,  stood  near 
the  intersection  of  the  two  roads  across  the  Wrightstown 
road  from  the  present  store.  This  tract  of  land  was 
owned  1753-1754  by  John  Wilson,  Sr.,  who  also  owned  the 
tavern  lot  across  the  Philadelphia  road  1754-1759. 

Thomas  Gaine  was  a  member  of  the  Associated  Com- 
pany of  Wrightstown,  which  was  affiliated  with  the 
Buckingham  Company  under  Captain  Lacey  in  1775  (^).

ported the  family  to  the  banks  of  the  "White  river,  in 
Delaware  county,  Indiana,  in  a  Bucks  county  market 
wagon.  After  the  family  were  settled  James  R.,  who  had

THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY, 


THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 


FIRST  GENERATION. 

The  only  light  that  we  can  throw  on  the  history  of  the 
first  generation  of  the  Thompson  family  in  Pennsylva- 
nia is  that  of  a  family  tradition,  always  rather  vague 
as  to  chronology  sometimes  so  vague  and  mysterious  as 
to  be  almost  worthless,  to  the  honest  historian.  How- 
ever the  writer  of  these  lines  has  frequently  encountered 
traditions  almost  as  mythical  as  those  of  Aladdin's 
Lamp  and  Fortunatus'  Purse,  that  held  the  fortunes  of 
the  universe,  yet  in  every  case  a  careful  investigation  of 
recorded  facts,  proved,  or  at  least  strongly  corroborated, 
the  essential  points  of  the  tradition,  though  the  dates 
and  localities  were  very  erroneously  stated  in  most  cases. 

We  are  glad  to  say  that  in  the  case  of  the  Thompson 
family,  the  tradition  in  reference  to  the  arrival  of  the 
American  progenitors  in  this  province  is  so  clearly  stated 
and  so  fortified  by  known  facts  and  records  that  there  is 
no  reason  to  question  it. 

The  family  had  its  origin  in  the  north  of  Ireland,  that 
is,  came  to  Pennsylvania  from  the  northern  provinces  of 
Ireland,  but  was  of  pure  Scotch  origin,  their  immediate 
forbears  having  removed  to  Ireland  to  escape  the  civil 
and  religious  turmoils  that  harassed  Scotland  in  the 
closing  years  of  the  Seventeenth  Century. 

The  Ulster  Scots,  or  Scotch-Irish,  as  they  are  generally 
called,  clannish  by  training  in  their  native  land,  were 
true  to  this  training  in  their  exile  in  Ireland,  and  even  on 
their  removal  to  Pennsylvania.  Therefore  we  find  each 
consignment  or  shipload  of  these  sturdy  pioneers  were 
more  or  less  connected  by  ties  of  consanguinity,  and  in- 
sisted on  settling  in  communities  and  in  close  association 
with  each  other. 

Thus  we  find  those  arriving  after  1725,  when  the  open 
tract  along  the  Neshaminy,  from  the  forks  northward 
and  westward,  had  been  settled  almost  exclusively  by 
Scotch-Irish  families  arriving  just  previous  to  that  date, 


162  THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 

took  up  adjoining  land  and  affiliated  with  their  com- 
patriots. If  the  consignment  was  too  large  to  be  ac- 
commodated, they  moved  on  into  the  wilderness  to  find 
sufficient  open  land  to  accommodate  them,  rather  than 
settle  among  strangers  to  their  faith  and  race. 

The  tradition  in  the  Thompson  family  is  that  one, 
Elizabeth  McGraudy,  having  married  in  County  Tyrone, 
Ireland,  about  the  year  1719,  one  Thompson,  whose  given 
name  the  family  tradition  seems  to  have  more  lately 
decided  to  be  Hugh,  and  about  the  year  1740,"  having 
been  left  a  widow  with  four  sons,  the  youngest  a  lad  in 
his  early  teens,  decided  to  emigrate  to  Penn's  colony  in 
America,  accompanying  relations  and  friends  from  the 
same  locality  The  tradition  states  that  when  she  was 
about  to  take  ship,  her  aged  father  on  his  knees  besought 
her  to  remain  in  Ireland,  and  on  finding  her  obdurate, 
poured  out  an  earnest  prayer  to  God  to  preserve  her  and 
her  family  from  the  perils  of  the  sea,  and  a  life  in  the 
wilderness  among  wild  beasts  and  without  the  ac- 
customed environment  of  a  civilized  life. 

We  find  that,  between  the  years  1735  and  1742,  the 
greater  part  of  the  land  on  the  west  branch  of  the 
Neshaminy  in  Warwick,  Warrington  and  New  Britain, 
was  laid  out  to  settlers  who  had  recently  arrived  from 
the  North  of  Ireland.  At  about  the  same  time  or  a  little 
later,  small  detached  parties  of  Scotch-Irish  made  set- 
tlements in  Newtown,  Upper  Makefleld,  Northampton, 
Warminster  and  Southampton,  mostly  on  the  edges  of 
the  settlement  about  Neshaminy  Church  of  Warwick, 
founded  in  1727,  with  a  slight  overflowing  into  Wrights- 
town. 

With  Elizabeth  Thompson  and  her  family,  came  her 
brother,  Samuel  McGraudy,  and  doubtless,  other  rela- 
tives of  herself  and  her  husband.  Samuel  JMcGraudy,  in 
the  year  1753,  purchased  a  tract  of  301  acres  of  land  in 
Warwick  township,  adjoining  the  Samuel  Fairies  Mill 
tract,  located  by  the  Mearns  and  Ramsey  families,  with 
both  of  which  the  second  generation  of  the  Thompson 
family  became  allied  by  marriage.  As  this  tract  had 
been  held  solely  by  land  speculators  up  to  the  time  of 
McGraudy 's  purchase,  it  is  probable  that  it  had  been 
occupied  for  a  number  of  years  by  some  of  the  family, 
and  it  may  have  been  the  temporary  home  of  Elizabeth 
Thompson,  and  her  four  sons,  Hugh,  Robert,  William 
and  John,  all  but  the  eldest  of  whom  were  millers,  and, 
doubtless,  learned  their  trade    in  some   of  the    nearby

Nesharaiuy  mills.  Whether  the  other  two  or  three 
Thompson  Scotch  Irish  families,  who  settled  in  this  lo- 
calit}^  at  about  the  same  date,  were  relations  of  the  family 
of  the  Tyrone  widow  is  not  known,  but  the  similarity  of 
names  of  at  least  one  of  these  families  that  settled  near 
the  Coimtj'^  line  in  Warrington,  is  significant.  These  are 
probably  of  the  same  line.  Letters  of  administration 
were  granted  upon  the  estate  of  Robert  Thompson  of 
Wrightstown,  October  3,  1745,  to  Thomas  More,  of 
Plumstead,  and  Hugh  Thompson,  of  Wrightstown,  their 
sureties  being  David  Spear  and  Samuel  McElhose,  of 
Wrightstown.  One  item  of  the  inventory  in  the  estate 
of  the  deceased  was,  "Bond  due  from  John  Wilson 
£10  13  sh."  The  estate  was  small,  less  than  £100,  and 
the  vocation  of  the  decedent  was  given  as  laborer.  He 
was  possibly  an  uncle  of  the  Thompson  brothers  with 
whom  this  narrative  is  concerned. 

Samuel  McGraudy  apparently  went  with  Henry  Jami- 
son (another  pioneer  settler  on  the  Neshaminy  in  War- 
wick on  a  tract  adjoining  IMcGraudy's,)  to  Florida.  His 
will  dated  at  "Pensacola,  Province  of  West  Florida," 
January  31,  1765,  was  probated  at  Philadelphia,  Febru- 
ary 4,  1766.  It  devised  his  estate  to  his  wife  Margaret, 
and  sons,  Robert,  Gaun,(i)  and  John;  giving  £10  to 
"sister's  daughter  Elizabeth"  without  disclosing  the 
name  of  either  sister  or  niece.  The  son,  Gaun,  married  a 
granddaughter  of  John  Wilson,  the  founder  of  the 
Wilson  family,  with  whom  the  Thompsons  are  allied, 
and  an  account  of  the  family  is  given  in  the  Wilson 
family. 

Elizabeth  (McGraudy)  Thompson,  born  in  Ireland  (or 
Scotland),  September  20,  1695,  {-)  died  in  Bucks  county, 
Pennsylvania,  Scpteinber  2!).  1768.  and  is  buried  at  Ne- 
shaminy Presbyterian  Church  of  Warwick.

SECOND  GENERATION. 

(2)  HUGH  THOMPSON,  the  eldest  of  the  emigrant 
brothers,  was  born  in  Ireland  in  1720.  With  Thomas 
More,  of  Plumstead,  he  was  granted  letters  of  adminis- 
tration in  the  estate  of  Robert  Thompson,  of  Wrights- 
town,  October  3,  1745,  signing  his  name  to  the  bond  in 
a  good  round  hand  very  similar  to  his  later  signatures, 
including  that  to  his  will. 

In  the  administrator's  bond  he  is  named  as  "Hugh 
Thompson,  of  Wrightstown,  laborer,"  but  he  was  for 
many  years  and  up  to  the  time  of  his  death,  a  school- 
master. This  vocation,  being  of  a  more  or  less  itinerant 
nature,  naturally  led  to  frequent  change  of  residence  in 
his  earlier  days.  He  seems  to  have  resided  in  the  neigh- 
borhood of  Solebury  at  the  time  of  the  marriage  of  his 
brother  Robert  to  the  widow  Simpson  in  1748,  as  Robert 
takes  credit  for  cash  paid  to  him  in  the  settlement  of  the 
Simpson  estate.  He  was  a  resident  of  Philadelphia  at 
the  time  of  the  baptism  of  his  two  sons  John  and  William 
1754-1757,  at  the  2d  Presbyterian  Church. 

A  Hugh  Thompson  is  enrolled  as  a  member  of  Captain 
Thomas'  Solebury  Company  of  Militia  in  the  Revolution 
(Penna.  Archives,  Fifth  Series,  Vol.  5,  p.  445.)  who  was 
doubtless  the  schoolmaster. 

The  tax  list  of  Newtown  1779,  the  earliest  list  preserv- 
ed shows  Hugh  Thompson  taxed  for  one  cow.  His  name 
appears  regularly  in  the  tax  lists  of  Newtown  from  that 
date  until  his  death  in  1797.  By  deed  dated  September 
31,  1788,  he  purchased  a  lot  in  Newtown  on  which  he 
erected  the  house  in  which  he  died,  at  the  corner  of 
Court  and  Penn  streets.

ments tending  to  navigation  and  the  others  to  be  sold

son Executrix  and  son  John  Thompson  and  my  cousin

the  north  of  Ireland.  His  place  of  residence  from  the 
time  of  the  arrival  of  the  family  in  Pennsylvania  is  un- 
knoM^n,  but  it  was  probably  Wrightstown  and  Upper 
Makefield.  Tradition  in  the  Simpson  family  makes  him 
a  journeyman  miller  for  John  Simpson  at  what  has  been 
long  known  as  Neeley's  Mill  on  the  Delaware  at  the 
mouth  of  Pidcock's  Creek  in  the  extreme  lower  point 
of  Solebury  township,  Bucks  comity.  At  the  time  of  the 
death  of  the  said  John  Simpson,  about  October  1,  1747. 
Six  months  later,  on  March  1,  1748,  he  married  Hannah 
Delaplaine  Simpson,  the  widow,  and  from  that  time 
seems  to  have  had  entire  charge  of  the  mill  and  planta- 
tion and  the  affairs  and  accounts  of  the  Simpson  estate. 

On  March  31  1748  he  made  a  public  vendue  in  his  own 
name  of  the  live  stock  and  other  personal  effects  of  the 
decedent,  and  among  the  purchasers  were  Hugh  Thomp- 
son and  Robert  Thompson  himself.  No  account  was 
filed  mitil  December  14,  1757,  when  Robert  Thompson 
petitioned  the  Orphans'  Court  to  appoint  men  to  inspect 
and  settle  his  accounts  of  the  estate  of  John  Simpson 
Avhose  widow  and  administratrix  he  had  married.  The 
report  of  the  auditors  was  made  at  the  next  court  and 
showed  a  balance  in  Thompson's  hands  as  administrator 
of  £605,  1  s.  11%  d.  Credit  was  taken  for  payment  of 
debts  and  obligations  to  a  long  list  of  creditors  and 
among  them  were  Hugh  Thompson  and  Thomas  More. 
A  charge  of  £20,  7s.,  6d.  is  made  for  ''the  children's 
schooling"  and  of  £2  ''for  finishing  a  barn." 

John  Simpson  and  Hannah  Delaplaine  were  married  at 
Abington  Friends  Meeting  in  1736  and  soon  after  brought 
a  certificate  to  Wrightstown  Monthly  Meeting  and  trans- 
ferred their  membership  to  Buckingham  Monthly  Meet- 
ing in  January  1743-4. 

How  John  Simpson  acquired  title  to  the  land  on  which 
he  built  and  operated  the  mill  is  not  a  matter  of  record 
in  Bucks  county.  The  tract  comprised  a  trifle  over  500 
acres  and  was  originally  surveyed  to  John  Pidcock  as 
shown  by  the  early  maps  of  the  Manor  of  Highlands  of 
which  it  formed  a  part.  The  Pidcocks  probably  trans- 
ferred such  title  as  they  had  to  John  Simpson  but  neither 
seem  to  have  taken  out  a  patent. 

After  the  death  of  Simpson  the  quit  rents  were  allow- 
ed to  run  into  arrears,  and  on  January  18,  1753,  a  patent 
was  granted  by  the  Proprietary  Commissi(mers  to  Will- 
iam Coleman  of  Philadelphia,  merchant,  for    the    whole 


SECOND  GENERATION.  167 

tract  of  505  acres.  The  patent  was  however  the  culmi- 
nation of  a  contract  between  a  syndicate  of  prominent 
business  men  who  were  interested  in  securing  mining- 
privileges  on  the  tract,  copper  ore  having  been  mined 
thereon  in  a  small  way  for  a  number  of  years.  These 
men  were  Governor  James  Hamilton,  Chief  Justice  Will- 
iam Allen,  Lawrence  Growden,  Langhorne  Biles,  Joseph 
Turner  and  William  Plumstead  to  whom  William  Cole- 
man transferred  the  title  to  the  whole  tract  on  June  19, 
1753,  one  day  after  the  date  of  the  patent,  and  they  on  the 
succeeding  day  June  20,  transferred  the  same  to  Robert 
Thompson,  reserving  to  their  use,  however,  "full  and  free 
liberty,  license  and  authority  to  dig,  search  and  work 
for  copper  ore,  lead  ore,  iron  ore  and  all  other  ores  and 
minerals  in  and  through  any  part  of  said  premises  and 
said  ores  there  from  time  to  time  and  at  all  times  here- 
after to  be  found  and  to  have  take  carry  away,  and  to 
convert  to  their  own  use  and  behoof  (three  full  and  clear 
fifth  parts  of  all  royal  mines  excepted  and  resers^ed  to 
the  proprietaries)"  and  "said  grantors  at  all  times  to 
make  reasonable  satisfaction  to  the  said  Robert  Thomp- 
son and  his  heirs  for  all  damages  which  he  or  they  shall 
suffer  for  by  digging,  searching  for,  getting,  and  carry- 
ing away  such  ore  and  working  said  mines,  said  dam- 
ages to  be  valued  by  two  indifferent  persons  mutually 
chosen." 

Robert  Thompson  erected  a  house  on  this  property  in 
1757  which  is  still  standing  though  now  abandoned  and 
rapidly  falling  into  decay.  On  the  front  of  this  house 
is  a  date  stone  inscribed  with  his  and  his  wife's  initials 
and  the  date  as  follows :

He  continued  in  the  ownership  of  the  mill  and  planta- 
tion until  his  death  and  by  his  will  devised  it  to  his 
daughter  Elizabeth  and  her  husband,  William  Neely,  and 
it  remained  in  the  family  for  three  generations  after 
them.  The  mill  now  in  the  tenure  of  Reuben  High  is 
still  in  operation  but  a  new  mill  house  was  erected  on 
the  site  of  the  old  one.  The  title  to  all  of  the  much 
divided  tract  has  now  passed  out  of  the  family. 

Thompson  IMemorial  Church,  in  the  adjoining  grave- 
yard of  which  rest  the  remains  of  many  generations  of 
the  Thompson  family,  stands  on  the  original  tract  a  half

mile  from  the  mill.  However,  Robert  Thompson  and  his 
wife  are  both  buried  in  the  Presbyterian  graveyard  at 
Newtown,  where  tombstones  with  quite  legible  descrip- 
tions, record  the  dates  of  their  respective  deaths  and 
their  ages. 

Robert  Thompson  died  November  8,  1804,  at  the  age  of 
eighty-two  years  and  Hannah  on  June  16,  1803,  at  the 
age  of  eighty-nine  years  and  three  months. 

She  was  born  in  or  near  Germantown,  Philadelphia, 
March  14,  1714,  and  was  a  daughter  of  James  Delaplaine 
and  his  wife  Hannah  Cock,  and  a  granddaughter  of 
Nicholas  Delaplaine,  a  native  of  France  who  came  from 
Holland  to  the  New  Netherlands  in  the  seventeenth  cen- 
tury with  his  wife  Susanna  Cresson  and  her  father  Pierre 
Cresson,  also  a  native  of  France. 

Robert  Thompson  was  not  enrolled  as  a  member  of  the 
Associated  Company  of  Solebury  in  1775,  nor  in  that  of 
Upper  Makefield  in  which  however  his  son-in-law  Will- 
nam  Neely  was  enrolled.  His  age  would  preclude  the 
necessity  for  voluntary  enrollment  but  he  probably  took 
some  part  in  the  struggle  for  independence.  His  name 
appears  later  in  the  involuntary  enrollment  of  Solebury 
militia  in  the  third  class.

(4)  WILLIAM  THOMPSON,  third  of  the  emigrant 
brothers,  was  born  in  Ireland  in  ]724.  As  in  the  case  of 
his  brothers  Hugh  and  Robert  nothing  is  known  of  his 
residence  in  early  manhood.  He  first  appears  on  record 
March  28,  1758,  when  Edward  Milnor  conveys  to  Will- 
iam Thompson,  of  Northampton,  cooper,  (i)  two  acres  of 
land  in  Wrightstown  township  along  the  Neshaminy 
creek,  which  was  utilized  in  the  erection  of  a  mill  dam, 
thereafter  part  of  the  mill  site  of  Thompson's  Mill  on 
the  opposite  side  of  the  creek  in  Northampton,  at  Chain 
Bridge. 

By  deed  dated  August  11,  1758,(2)  Robert  Cummings 
conveys  to  William  Thompson  and  John  Thompson,  mil- 
ler, of  Northampton    township,    14  acres,    69  perches    of

(2)  Ibid,   p.   401. 


SECOND  GENERATION.  169 

land  in  Northampton  and  by  deed  dated  February  10, 
1759,  (1)  Joseph  Sacket  conveys  to  William  Thompson, 
cooper,  and  John  Thompson,  miller,  both  of  Northamp- 
ton township,  22  acres,  69  perches  in  Northampton. 
These  three  tracts  comprise  the  mill  site,  upon  which 
they  erected  a  "water  grist  and  com  mill." 

William  Thompson  however,  does  not  appear  to  have 
remained  in  Northampton  many  years  after  the  erection 
of  the  mill.  He  purchased  by  deed  dated  May  1,  1759, 
of  Evan  Jones,  140  acres  in  Wrightstown  extending  up 
to  the  ''Town  Square"  at  Penns  Park,  on  which  he  maj'' 
have  resided  for  a  few  years,  but  soon  removed  to  Lower 
Dublin  township,  Philadelphia  county,  where  he  appears 
to  have  owned  and  operated  a  mill  for  several  years. 
William  Thompson  of  Lower  Dublin  township,  miller, 
and  Elizabeth,  his  wife,  by  deed  dated  February  1, 
1764,  (2)  conveyed  to  John  Thompson,  of  Northampton, 
miller,  the  above  named  three  tracts  with  mill  and  other 
improvements  thereon.  However  he  returned  to  Bucks 
county,  purchasing  by  deed  dated  September  13,  1765,  {^) 
the  mill  at  Bridgetown  in  Middletown  township,  and  re- 
moved thereto.  His  next  purchase  was  195  acres  of 
land  in  Wrightstown  of  the  heirs  and  executors  of  Isaac 
Chapman,  deceased,  by  deeds  dated  December  30, 
1771,  (*)  and  on  the  same  date  he  executed  a  deed  to 
William  Chapman,  granting  him  the  'privilege  of  over- 
flowing and  laying  under  water"  parts  of  the  said  195 
acres  in  the  construction  of  a  mill  dam.*  This  tract  ex- 
tends from  Penns  Park  along  the  east  side  of  the  Phila- 
delphia road  to  the  Neshaminy  at  Thompson's  Mill. 

He  continued  to  reside  in  Wrightstown  from  the  date 
of  this  deed  until  1777  but  M^hether  on  the  Chapman  or 
Penns  Park  farm  we  are  unable  to  determine.  By  deed 
dated  May  3,  1777,  {^)  he  purchased  of  the  heirs  and  ex-

*Tlie  Chapman  mill  tract  lay  next  to  this  tract  down 
the  Neshaminy,  but  the  Mill  being  located  near  the  lower 
line  of  the  Chapman  tract  it  seems  strange  that  it  was 
necessary  to  bacK  water  over  the  Thompson  tract.  This 
part  of  the  Thompson  tract  is  now  owned  by  William 
Davis.  Part  of  this  tract  lying  within  the  "Town  Square" 
had  been  purchased  by  Isaac  Chapman  of  John  Wil- 
son. (?)

ecutors  of  Samuel  Fairies  the  mill  on  the  Neshaminy  in 
Warwick  lately  known  as  Ross'  Mill  with  75  acres  of 
land  and  removed  thereto.  Up  to  this  time  notwith- 
standing his  wanderings  he  retained  the  title  to  the 
Bridgetown  Mill,  eonvejnng  it  to  Joseph  Jenks  May  17, 
1777,(1)  while  a  resident  in  Warwick.  He  retained  occu- 
pation of  the  Warwick  Mill  until  1780,  operating  there  a 
grist  mill,  oil  mill  and  tannery.  In  the  latter  year  he 
returned  to  Wrightstown  and  in  1781  the  property  is 
taxed  in  the  name  of  Hugh  Ramsey,  his  son-in-law,  to 
whom  a  conveyance  thereof  is  made  by  William  Thomp- 
son, of  Wrightstown,  "Miller"  and  Elizabeth  his  wife, 
April  4,  1782.(2) 

This  time  he  remained  in  Wrightstown  until  1783.  On 
June  23,  of  that  year  he  conveyed  the  195  acres  bought 
of  Isaac  Chapman's  estate  to  his  brother  John, (3)  and 
removed  to  New  London  township,  Chester  county.  By 
deeds  dated  November  20,  1784,  he  and  his  wife  Eliza- 
beth, resident  in  New  London,  conveyed  to  William  Rob- 
inson 56  acres  136  perches,  to  Thomas  Gaine  50  acres  28 
perches,  and  to  Samuel  Kirk,  73  acres,  157  perches,  re- 
spectively, parts  of  the  Penns  Park,  property  purchased 
of  Evan  Jones  in  1759.  While  still  a  resident  of  New 
London,  Chester  county,  he  purchased  at  sheriff's  sale, 
September  13,  1787,  85  acres  in  Northampton  sold  as  the 
property  of  Robert  VanHorn,  and  with  his  wife  Eliza- 
beth conveyed  it  to  Gilliam  Cornell  two  weeks  later. 

William  Thompson  was  named  as  one  of  the  three 
trustees  to  whom  the  site  of  the  Presbyterian  church  and 
graveyard  at  Newtown  was  conveyed  in  1769. 

As  in  the  case  of  his  elder  brothers  there  is  no  proof 
of  his  active  service  in  the  field  during  the  Revolution- 
ary War.  He,  with  John  Johnson  and  Simon  Sacket, 
was  one  of  the  committee  from  Wrightstown  appointed 
by  the  Committee  of  Safety  to  receive  the  arms  of  non- 
associators.(*)  The  names  Hugh,  Robert,  John  and 
William  Thompson  were  common  to  other  families  in 
Bucks  county  at  the  time  of  the  Revolution  and  it  is  next 
to  impossible  to  distinguish  between  them,  where  resi- 
dence is  not  given. 

William  Thompson  died  August  16,  1815,  in  East  Not- 
tingham township.  Chester  county,   Pcnna.,  at  the  ripe

old  age  of  ninety-one  years.  He  married  in  1759  or  1760, 
Elizabeth  Huston,  daughter  of  Hugh  Huston,  another 
Scotch  Irishman  of  Warwick  township  by  his  wife 
Jane  Ramsey,  who  accompanied  her  first  husband,  Rob- 
ert Mearns  and  her  brother  William  Ramsey,  from  the 
North  of  Ireland  prior  to  1730. 

Robert  Mearns  and  his  brother-in-law  William  Ramsey 
purchased  638  acres  of  land  in  Warwick  township, 
Mearns  paying  one-third  of  the  purchase  money  and 
Ramsey  two-thirds  thereof.  On  the  eastern  end  of  the 
tract  was  erected  Mearns'  Mill  which  with  a  portion  of 
the  land  is  still  owned  and  occupied  by  a  member  of  the 
family,  Robert  Mearns  died  in  March  1730  and  his 
widow  about  one  year  later  married  Hugh  Huston.  The 
land  was  not  divided  until  1745  when  on  petition  of 
Hugh  Mearns  and  William  Ramsey  to  the  Orphans 
Court,  212  3-4  acres  were  laid  off  to  the  Mearns  heirs  and 
the  balance  to  William  Ramsey,  their  petition  reciting 
the  facts  in  relation  to  the  pur  chase  and  subsequent 
marriage  of  the  widow  Mearns  to  Hugh  Huston.  It  was 
on  a  portion  of  this  tract  that  the  Fairies  Mill,  later 
owned  by  William  Thompson  and  his  son-in-law  Hugh 
Ramsey  was  located. 

Jane  (Ramsey)  Mearns-Huston  died  September  12, 
1781  at  the  age  of  eighty-two  years  having  survived  her 
second  husband  many  years.  He  was  a  member  of  the 
Associated  Company  of  Warwick,  August  21,  1775,  after 
which  we  have  no  record  of  him.  He  is  probably  buried 
beside  his  wife  in  Neshaminy  graveyard  but  no  tomb- 
stone marks  his  resting  place.  Hugh  and  Jane  (Ram- 
sey) Huston  had  besides  Elizabeth  and  Mary  Thompson, 
the  wives  respectively  of  William  and  John  Thompson, 
a  son  Thomas  Huston,  who  was  captain  of  a  Bucks 
county  company  during  the  Revolution  and  rendered 
loyal  service.  He  was  the  father  of  Hon  Charles  Huston, 
a  justice  of  the  Supreme  Court  of  Pennsylvania.

(5)  JOHN  THOMPSON,  the  youngest  of  the  four 
emigrant  brothers,  was  born  November  18,  1726.  As 
cited  in  the  sketch  of  his  elder  brother  William,  he  joined 
William  in  the  purchase  of  the  mill  site  at  Chain  Bridge 
in  Northampton  township  in  1758  and  1759  and  pur- 
chased the  interest  of  his  brother  therein  by  deed  of 
February  1,  1764.  He  was  a  miller  by  vocation  and 
probably  learned  that  trade  at  the  Mearns  Mill  on  the 
Neshaminy  creek  in  Warwick  township  near  the  North- 
ampton line  only  a  few  miles  distant  from  what  became 
his  own  mill  site.  He  was  a  successful  business  man  and 
became  a  large  land  holder.  His  first  purchase  after  the 
completion  of  the  mill  was  on  approximately  the  date  of 
his  marriage  March  20,  1762, (i)  when  Robert  Cummings 
and  Ann  his  wife  conveyed  to  him  a  "Messuage, 
plantation"  and  79  acres  and  148  perches  of  land  adjoin- 
ing the  mill  property,  part  of  the  same  tract  from  which 
the  mill  site  was  cut  off.  On  April  25,  1765,(2)  Cum- 
mings conveyed  to  him  another  "tenement  and  planta- 
tion" with  109  acres,  another  part  of  the  same  tract, 
making  the  homestead  and  mill  tract  a  total  of  about  228 
acres. 

It  was  upon  the  first  of  these  tracts  that  the  old  gam- 
brel  roofed  house  stands  that  was  the  home  of  the 
Thompsons  for  several  generations.  Tradition  relates, 
however  that  it  was  not  the  original  house  on  the  prop- 
erty but  was  built  by  John  Thompson  soon  after  his 
purchase  of  the  tract.  There  are  legends  of  its  having 
been  beseiged  by  Indians  but  these  legends  probably  had 
their  origin  the  raids  made  upon  it  by  the  Tories  dur- 
ing the  Revolution  when  the  Doan  outlaws  ransacked 
the  house  in  search  of  money  collected  by  John  Thomp- 
son for  the  use  of  the  government  and  the  army.  They 
found  very  little  money  however  as  the  bulk  of  it  was 
concealed  in  a  cushion  on  which  Mrs.  Thompson  sat  in 
one  of  the  chairs  in  the  living  room ;  she  refused  to  leave 
her  chair  on  the  ground  of  bodily  infirmities  thus  saving

her  husband  from  the  loss  of  considerable  cash.(i)  The 
house  was  located  on  a  hill  which  rises  from  the  valley 
of  the  Neshaminy  a  short  distance  from  the  mill.  It  was 
set  back  a  little  from  the  old  King's  HighAvay  which 
crossed  the  Neshaminy  at  the  mill  first  by  a  ford  and, 
soon  after  the  erection  of  the  mill  by  a  wooden  bridge, 
which  was  later  replaced  by  a  Chain  Bridge  which  gave 
its  name  to  the  mill  and  locality. 

John  Thompson  was  an  active  patriot  during  the  Revo- 
lution. He  enrolled  himself  as  a  member  of  the  North- 
ampton Company  of  Associators(2)  and  w^as  commis- 
sioned ensign  thereof  August  19,  1775. 

He  was  commissioned  Sheriff  of  Bucks  county,  March 
22,  1777(3)  and  served  until  October  17,  1779,  being  the 
first  Sheriff  of  Bucks  county  commissioned  under  the 
constitution  of  1776.  He  was  appointed  wagon  master 
January  9,  1778 ;  sub-agent  for  purchasing  flour  for  the 
French  fleet,  on  July  13,  1779 ;  and  Collector  of  Excise  on 
October  20,  1783.  It  is  probable  that  to  his  position  as 
a  commissioned  officer  as  well  as  the  fact  that  he  had 
funds  in  his  hands  collected  for  the  use  of  that  gov- 
ernment that  he  owed  the  visit  of  the  "Tory  Doans,"  as 
their  animosity  was  generally  directed  against  tax  col- 
lectors. 

See  Penna.  Archives,  Second  Series,  Volume  III,  pp. 
713,  728,  730. 

In  1773  John  Thompson  purchased  a  farm  of  176  acres, 
130  perches  on  Newtown  creek  in  Newtown  township,  of 
John  Davis.  (^)  In  1778  he  purchased  38  acres  in  War- 
wick near  Bridge  Valley  of  Elijah  Anderson. (S)  In  1783 
his  brother  "William  conveyed  to  him  the  195  acres  in 
AVrightstown,(^)    bought   of  the   Isaac   Chapman   estate. 

(1)  Some  details  of  this  raid  are  related  by  Charles 
Thompson,  a  great  grandson  of  this  John  Thompson, 
who  states  that  it  occurred  when  his  grandfather,  Hugh, 
was  eighteen  years  old,  which  would  place  it  in  the  year 
1782.  As  related  to  Charles  by  his  grandfather,  there 
was  considerable  money  in  the  house,  including  the  pro- 
ceeds of  a  load  of  flour  taken  to  Trenton,  and  the  team 
driver,  farmer  and  miller,  the  name  of  whom  Charles 
does  not  recollect  were  at  the  house  effecting  a  settle- 
ment. Hugh  and  the  other  sons  were  also  present  and 
although  driven  from  the  lower  part  of  the  house  defend- 
ed the  stairway  so  valiantly  that  the  outlaws  did  not 
reach  the  upper  floor  but  decamped  with  very  little 
plunder.

174  THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 

In  1789  he  bought  at  Sheriff's  sale  29  acres,  108  perches 
in  Wrightstown;(i)  in  1790  he  purchased  of  Leffert 
Lefferts  three  tracts  in  Newtown  aggregating  130 
acres,  (2)  and  in  1797  of  Dr.  Samuel  Dungan  193  acres, 
109  perches  in  Northampton, (^)  making  an  aggregate  of 
945  acres  of  which  he  died  seized. 

John  Thompson  married  February  17,  1762  Mary  Hus- 
ton, twin  sister  of  Elizabeth  the  wife  of  his  brother  Will- 
iam, and  daughter  of  Hugh  and  Jane  (Ramsey)  Huston. 
She  was  born  October  6,  1738,  and  died  August  11,  1803. 
John  Thompson  died  July  18,  1799.  Both  are  buried 
in  the  Presbyterian  graveyard  at  Newtown. 

The  will  of  John  Thompson  probated  September  24, 
1799,  is  registered  at  Doylestown  in  Will  Book  6,  page 
211,  and  is  as  follows : 

I,  John  Thompson,  of  the  Township  of  Northampton, 
in  the  county  of  Bucks,  and  state  of  Pennsylvania,  yoe- 
man,  being  far  advanced  in  years  and  infirm  of  body,  but 
of  sound,  disposing  mind  and  memory  (blessed  be  God) 
do  make  and  put  in  writing  this  my  last  Will  and  Testa- 
ment in  manner  and  form  following:  impromis. 

It  is  my  will  and  mind  that  all  my  just  debts  and  fun- 
eral expenses  be  first  paid  and  discharged. 

Item.  I  give  unto  my  beloved  wife,  Mary  Thompson, 
the  possession  of  the  west  room  in  my  house  where  I 
live,  and  one  of  the  middle  rooms  and  so  much  of  the 
kitchen  and  cellar  as  she  may  have  occassion  of  for  her 
own  use,  with  the  privilege  of  passing  freely  to  and  from 
the  several  places  aforesaid,  and  one  horse  and  one  cow, 
the  choice  of  my  stock,  and  so  much  of  my  household 
goods  and  kitchen  furniture  as  she  may  choose  to  keep 
for  her  own  use,  all  which  I  give  unto  my  said  wife  as 
long  as  she  remains  my  widow. 

Item.  I  give,  devise  and  bequeath  unto  my  six  sons 
(to-wit,  Hugh  Thompson,  Robert  Thompson,  John  Thomp- 
son, Thomas  Thompson,  James  Thompson  and  William 
Thompson)  all  of  my  lands  wheresoever  the  same  may 
be  situated,  with  the  improvements,  to  be  equally  divided 
among  them  according  to  the  value  thereof,  share  and 
share  alike;  to  hold  to  them  and  their  heirs  and  assigns 
forever,  they  paying  thereout  to  my  grandson,  Charles 
McCelland,  the  sum  of  four  hundred  pounds,  in  equal  pro- 
portions, that  is  sixty  six  pounds,  thirteen  shillings  and 
four  pence  each,  which  sum  I  give  unto  my  said  grand- 
son to  be  paid  to  him  when  he  attains  to  twenty-one 
years  of  age  with  interest  from  the  day  of  my  decease. 
But  if  my  said  grandson  shall  die  before  attaining  to 
twenty-one  years  of  age,  and  without  lawful  issue,  this 
legacy  is  void  and  the  money  not  to  be  paid  by  my  said 
sons;  and  my  said  sons  paying  furthur  out  of  my  lands  in

equal  proportions  the  sum  of  thirty-six  pounds  yearly, 
and  every  year  unto  my  said  wife,  keep  her  cow  and 
horse  well  both  winter  and  summer,  and  find  her  a  suf- 
ficient quantity  of  firewood,  cut  of  a  suitable  length,  and

And  it  is  my  will  and  mind  that  if  either  or  any  of  my 
said  sons  shall  die  before  they  obtain  to  twenty-one  years 
of  age,  and  without  lawful  issue,  that  the  share  or  shares 
of  my  estate  herein  given  him  or  them  so  arising  (?) 
shall  go  and  be  equally  divided  among  his  or  their  sur- 
viving brothers;  to  hold  to  them  and  their  assigns  for- 
ever. And  in  order  that  my  lands  be  equally  divided 
among  my  sons,  it  is  my  will  and  mind  that  each  of  them 
shall  choose  one  person  to  divide  the  same  and  appoint 
to  each  one  his  particular  share  or  part;  and  it  is  my 
will  and  mind  that  what  I  have  herein  given  unto  my 
said  wife  and  directed  to  be  paid  unto  her  be  in  lieu  of 
her  thirds  or  d;ow^er  In  my  estate. 

Item.  I  give  and  bequeath  unto  my  six  sons

riage to  be  equally  divided  between  them,  except  such

ployed in  my  business  after  they  attain  to  twenty-one 
years  of  age  to  whom  I  give  at  the  rate  of  twenty  pounds 
for  each  year,  and  in  proportion  for  part  of  a  year  that 
they  live  with  me  and  be  employed  in  my  business  after 
they  attain  that  age. 

Item.  I  hereby  appoint  my  sons,  Hugh  Thompson, 
Robert  Thompson,  and  John  Thompson,  guardians  to 
such  of  my  children  as  are  not  twenty-one  years  of  age; 
and  lastly  I  nominate  and  appoint  my  three  sons,  Hugh 
Thompson,  Robert  Thompson  and  John  Thompson  my 
executors  of  this  my  last  Will  and  Testament,  hereby  re- 
voking all  former  wills  by  me  made  and  ratifiying  this 
and  no  other  to  be  my  last  will  and  testament. 

In  Witness  Whereof,  I  have  to  these  presents  set  my

THIRD  GENERATION. 

(6)  CAPTAIN  JOHN  THOMPSON,  son  of  Hugh  and 
Sarah,  born  August  17,  1754,  was  baptised  at  Second 
Presbyterian  Church  of  Philadelphia,  December  15,  1754. 

(1)  This  lot  on  the  Philadelphia  Road  was  the  29 
acres,  108  perches  directly  across  the  Philadelphia  Road 
from  the  late  Albert  Thompson  farm  lately  belonging  to 
Henry  W.  Pearson  to  whom  it  was  conveyed  by  Abraham 
Thompson  in  1851.  The  heirs  of  Hugh  Thompson  con- 
veyed to  Abraham  Nov.  17,  1847. 


THIRD   GENERATION.  177 

He  appears  to  have  resided  in  or  near  Newtown  until 
1803.  By  deed  dated  November  22,  1803,  recorded  at 
Doylestown  in  Deed  Book  33,  page  337,  as  "John  Thomp- 
son, only  son  and  devisee  named  in  the  will  of  Hugh 
Thompson,  late  of  Newtown,  Schoolmaster,"  he  conveys 
to  Aaron  Phillips  the  house  and  lot  in  Newtown,  at  the 
corner  of  Court  and  Penn  streets,  devised  to  him  by  his 
father.  Part  of  the  consideration  was  a  bond  of  $1000.00 
given  by  Aaron  Phillips,  the  interest  whereof  was  to  be 
paid  to  Sarah  Thompson,  widow  of  said  Hugh,  during  her 
life,  and  the  princiual  at  her  death  to  the  said  John 
Thompson.  He  is  joined  in  this  deed  by  wife  Mary

down  to  1808,  show  that  Sarah  Thompson  was  living 
therein.  It  finally  came  into  the  ownership  of  William 
Kroesen,  who  had  married  Sarah  Johnson,  a  daughter  of 
Elizabeth  (Thompson)  Johnson,  sister  to  John  as  shown 
later  in  the  narrative. 

John  Thompson  was  commissioned.  May  6,  1777,  Cap- 
tain of  the  First  Company,  Fifth  Battalion,  Bucks  County 
Militia,  Colonel,  Joseph  Mcllvain.  On  July  31,  1777,  he 
was  stationed  at  Bristol,  Pennsylvania,  with  47  men  and, 
four  other  companies,  under  command  of  Colonel  Hugh 
Tomb.(i) 

On  the  records  of  Newtown  Presbyterian  Church,  ap- 
pears a  record  of  the  marriage  of  John  Thompson  to 
Catharine  Arkley  on  May  4,  1778,  but  if  this  was  Cap- 
tain Thompson,  he  must  have  married  a  second  time. 
The  same  records  show  the  Baptism  of  the  children  of 
"Captain  John  and  Mary  Thompson"  as  given  below. 
We  have  no  record  of  him  after  1803.

married  Charles  Stewart  of  Upper  Makefield  in  which 
township  he  was  reared.  He  learned  the  milling  business 
with  Robert  Thompson  prior  to  his  marriage  with  the 
latter 's  daughter  and  upon  his  wife's  inheriting  the  mill, 
he  continued  to  operate  it  until  his  death,  and  it  came 
to  be  known  as  Neely's  Mill. 

William  Neely  was  one  of  the  leading  organizers  of 
the  Presbyterian  congregation  of  Solebury  out  of  the 
Newtown  congregation  in  1810,  and  was  made  treasurer 
of  the  fund  raised  for  erection  of  the  church,  and  as  a 
delegate  of  the  associated  subscribers  he  applied  to  the 
Philadelphia  Presbytery  on  October  12,  1810,  for  it  to 
be  taken  under  the  care  of  the  Presbytery  as  an  inde- 
pendent church.  The  church  was  later  known  as  the 
Thompson  Memorial  Church,  its  main  supporters  be- 
ing the  Thompson  family. 

"William  Neely  enrolled  himself  as  a  member  of  the 
Associated  Company  of  Upper  Makefield  August  19, 
1775,(1)  and  on  May  6,  1777  he  was  commissioned  Cap- 
tain of  the  Fourth  Company  First  Battalion  of  the 
Bucks  County  Militia  under  Col.  Hugh  Tomb.  (2)  His 
company  was  at  Billingsport  August  26  1777  under  Major 
John  Folwell  but  was  in  command  of  Lieutenant  John 
Keith.  On  the  organization  of  the  Flying  Camp  in  1776 
William  Neely  was  commissioned  Captain  of  one  of  the 
companies  in  that  organization  (^)  and  participated  with 
it  in  the  Campaign  of  Long  Island. 

William  Neely  died  July  10,  1818,  and  his  wife  Eliza- 
beth died  February  13,  1834.  Both  are  buried  in  the 
Solebury  Presbyterian  churchyard.

was  probably  a  nephew  or  other  near  relative  of  Jean 
Ramsey  the  mother  of  Elizabeth  (Huston)  Thompson. 
On  his  marriage  to  Jane  Thompson  he  took  charge  of  the 
Fairies  Mill  and  in  1782  purchased  it  of  his  father-in-law, 
William  Thompson,  and  conducted  it  until  1790  when  he 
sold  it  and  removed  to  East  Nottingham  township, 
Chester  county,  Pennsylvania,  where  he  purchased  a 
large  tract  of  land.  In  179-4  he  erected  a  hotel  and  store 
in  East  Nottingham  which  he  conducted  until  his  death 
which  occurred  March  25,  1825.  He  was  a  man  of  quiet 
undemonstrative  disposition,  but  a  successful  business 
man  and  held  in  high  esteem  by  his  neighbors.  He  is 
said  to  have  been  the  last  man  in  his  section  to  wear 
knee  breeches.  Another  eccentricity  related  of  his  old 
age  was  the  habit,  when  sitting  in  thoughtful  and 
reminiscent  mood,  to  pull  one  long  hair  at  a  time  from 
his  head  with  the  result  that  he  became  quite  bald. 

Jane  Ramsey  continued  to  keep  the  tavern  for  some 
years  after  the  death  of  her  husband  and  was  considered 
a  clever  and  shrewd  business  woman.  She  inherited  un- 
der her  father's  will  one-half  of  the  plantation  in  New 
London  township,  the  other  one-half  interest  being  de- 
vised to  her  sister  Mary  Scott.  Mrs.  Ramsey  died  May 
12,  1836.

letters  between  the  cousins  as  "Betty"  and  seems  to  have 
been  a  prime  favorite  with  her  relatives  including  her 
father,  who  in  his  will  made  August  1,  1814,  made  her 
executrix  with  her  cousin.  Dr.  William  Thompson,  and 
devised  to  her  the  residue  of  his  real  and  personal  estate 
including  the  mill  on  the  Octorara  Creek.  On  February 
9,  1815,  she  married  Jonathan  Kirk  of  an  old  Irish  Quaker 
family  who  had  come  from  Lurgan,  Ireland  about  1684, 
and  settled  in  New  Castle  county.       He  was  a  son  of 


184  THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 

Elisha  and  Mary  (Allen)  Kirk,  the  Aliens  being  another 
of  the  Irish  Quaker  families  of  Nottingham  and  New 
Castle. 

The  marriage  was  evidently  distasteful  to  her  father, 
as  on  May  31,  1815,  he  added  a  codicil  to  his  will  cutting 
her  out  altogether  as  a  legatee  and  executrix.  The  fact 
is  referred  to  by  Dr.  William  Thompson  in  a  letter  to  his 
brother  Hugh,  of  Wrightstown,  under  date  of  September 
19,  1815,  in  which  he  further  states  that  "that  the  young 
son-in-law,  Betty's  husband,  has  instituted  suit  in  law 
against  the  codicil."  This  codicil  which  named  his  son 
John,  executor  was  set  aside  by  a  jury  November  17, 
1817. 

Elizabeth  died  December  11,  1821, (i)  and  Jonathan 
married  second  Hannah  Thomas.  He  died  in  Michigan 
in  the  autumn  of  1829.

1803,  William  Kroesen  of  Newtown,  Bucks  county  Penn- 
sylvania. He  was  born  in  Northampton  township  in 
1775  and  followed  the  trade  of  shoemaker  in  Newtown 
until  the  time  of  his  death  on  March  3,  1851.  His  wife 
Sarah,  died  January  21,  1843  in  the  house  erected  by  her 
grandfather,  Hugh  Thompson,  at  the  corner  of  Penn  and 
Court  streets,  Newtown,  and  she  and  her  husband  are

1803.  Phillips  conveyed  it  to  Enoch  Addis  in  1806,  and 
Addis  to  Yardley  in  1808.  All  these  conversances  recite

ing in  one  of  the  houses  on  the  lot  conveyed,  of  which 
Kroesen  having  purchased  but  the  half.  William  Kroe-

Penn  near  the  rear  of  his  residence  which  fronted  on 
Court  street,  died  March  3,  1851,  seized  of  the  remainder

son  of  his  brother  Isaac,  reserving  a  life  tenancy  for  his 
housekeeper  Elizabeth  Winship  in  the  small  house  on

his  lineal  descendants  to  the  present  generation.  The  suc- 
ceeding generations  were  likewise  prominent  in  public 
affairs  holding  many  positions  of  trust.  Daniel  Poore  on

Fulton,  son  of  James  and  Margaret  (Miller)  Fulton  and 
grandson  of  John  and  Eleanor  Fulton  who  came  from 
Lanarkshire,  Scotland,  in  1753,  and  settled  on  the  Big 
Elk  in  New  Castle  county,  now  Delaware.  James  Fulton,

lutionary war  serving  under  General  Mifflin  in  the  regi- 
ment commanded  by  Colonel  Evan  Evans.  He  was  with

on  the  Big  Elk  in  New  Castle  county,  February  18,  1801. 
He  received  a  common  school  education  at  local  subscrip- 
tion schools  and  learned  the  trade  of  a  paper  maker.  In 
partnership  with  his  brother.  Miller  Fulton,  he  operated 
a  paper  mill  and  fulling  mill  on  the  Big  Elk,  1823-1827,

(49)  JOHN  JOHNSTON  THOMPSON,  M.  D.,  son  of 
John  S.  and  Anne  (Gillespie)  Thompson,  was  born  in 
Woodstock,  Shenandoah  county,  Virginia,  October  22, 
1808.  He  studied  medicine  and  was  located  for  a  time 
at  Luray,  Page  county,  Virginia,  later  locating  at  Point 
Pleasant,  Mason  county,  West  Virginia,  and  finally  in 
Putnam  county,  West  Virginia,  near  the  town  of  Ray- 
mond, where  he  died  May  16,  1881. 

He  was  a  man  much  admired  and  sought  after  for  his 
sterling  worth  and  usefulness.  He  was  a  close  student 
and  became  eminent  in  his  profession.  Dr.  Thompson 
was  elected  to  the  Legislature  of  Virginia  in  1859  and 
served  in  the  memorable  session  of  1860-1  when  the 
state  seceded  from  the  Union,  which  secession  he  bitterly 
and  persistently  opposed.  A  marked  trait  of  his  char- 
acter was  his  impatience  of  sham,  insincerity  and  hypoc- 
risy in  professional,  business,  social,  or  public  life.  Quite 
a  glowing  tribute  was  paid  to  his  memory  by  the  local 
papers  at  the  time  of  his  death. 

Dr.    Thompson   married   May    8,    1832,    Anne    Arthur,

He  married  second  October  15,  1839,  Mary,  daughter  of 
Hon.  James  Beale  a  member  of  Congress  from  Virginia,

S.  and  Ann  (Gillespie)  Thompson  born  in  Woodstock, 
Shenandoah  county,  Virginia,  April  21,  1814,  married 
July  6,  1842,  Elizabeth  Yeaunt,  born  January  3, 
1823,  daughter  of  Samuel  and  Barbara  (Cagey)  Yeaunt, 
of  Rockingham  county,  Virginia. 

At  the  outbreak  of  the  Civil  War  Robert  Thompson 
entered  the  Confederate  Army,  rendering  loyal  service. 
His  name  appears  among  the  sad  class  of  the  "missing"

charitable  and  religious  enterprises.  He  was  a  Re- 
publican in  politics  and  took  an  active  interest  in  the  suc- 
cess of  his  party,  but  could  not  be  induced  to  accept  other 
than  local  offices.  He  gave  to  each  of  his  four  sons  a 
farm  of  160  acres.  His  wife,  Louisa  (Riddle)  Thompson, 
died  May  8,  1882,  and  he  died  March  10,  1900,  at  his

sided on  a  farm  of  125  acres  lying  along  the  Durham 
Road,  between  Wrightstown  and  the  Anchor  Hotel,  ex- 
tending southwesterly  along  the  road  to  Penn's  Park, 
and  northwesterly  to  the  Second  Street  turnpike  near  the 
trolley  crossing.  One  half  of  the  farm  next  to  the  Dur- 
ham Road  was  the  homestead  of  Joseph  Johnson  and  was 
devised  to  Charles  and  Anna  by  his  will  in  1827  being  al- 
ready their  home.  The  other  half  was  purchased  by 
Charles  Thompson  in  1840.  After  the  death  of  Charles 
Thompson  this  property  was  sold  to  Edward  W.  Sackett. 

Charles  Thompson  was  for  a  number  of  years  a  Justice 
of  the  Peace  and  made  an  enviable  record  as  a  judicious 
peace  officer.  Although  he  made  an  earnest  effort  to  see 
justice  done  between  litigants  he  made  it  a  point  to  keep 
all  petty  cases  out  of  court  and  adjust  all  differences  in  a 
just  and  honorable  manner.  He  was  looked  upon  as  a 
man  of  more  than  ordinary  intelligence  and  judgment 
and  was  much  respected  in  the  neighborhood  in  which  he 
resided.  He  also  followed  surveying  and  conveyancing, 
and  there  are  very  few  legal  documents  covering  the  per-

iod  of  his  activities  in  that  neighborhood  that  were  not 
drawn  by  Charles  Thompson,  Esq.  He  was  the  only 
farmer  in  the  neighborhood  who  kept  a  herd  of  hornless 
cattle,  believing  that  horned  cattle  were  too  cruel  to 
each  other.  This  was  many  years  before  the  custom  of 
dehorning  cattle  came  into  vogue.

(91)  HUSTON  THOMPSON,  M.  D.,  eldest  son  of 
Thomas  Mifflin  and  Elizabeth  (Wilson)  Thompson,  born 
on  the  maternal  homestead  in  Buckingham  township, 
Bucks  county,  Pennsylvania,  March  7,  1801,  studied  medi- 
cine and  practiced  his  profession  at  Dolington,  Bucks 
county,  until  his  death  on  February  8,  1844.  He  had  the 
reputation  of  a  successful  and  skilled  i)hysician.  He  was 
never  married.  In  the  great  freshet  of  1842,  when 
many  of  the  bridges  across  the  Delaware  river,  including 
the  one  at  Washington's  Crossing,  (Taylorsville)  were 
washed  away.  Dr.  Huston  Thompson  was  among  the 
many  congregated  on  the  river  banks  at  Taylorsville 
watching  the  extraordinary  flood.  Shortly  before  the 
bridge  gave  away  to  the  force  of  the  flood,  it  was  re- 
marked that  the  painting  executed  by  Edward  Hicks 
representing  Washington  crossing  the  Delaware  was  still 
on  the  bridge  where  it  had  hung  for  many  years.  Dr. 
Thompson,  on  learning  the  fact,  rushed  out  on  the  quiv- 
ering bridge  and  rescued  the  painting,  regaining  the 
abutment  just  as  the  bridge  went  down.  This  crude  but 
interesting  historical  relic  is  now  among  the  exhibits 
of  the  Bucks  County  Historical  Society  at  Doylestown.

farm  in  Buckingham  township,  Bucks  county,  Pennsylva- 
nia, September  18,  1803,  married  December  7,  1826,  Susan 
Simpson,  daughter  of  James  and  Mary  (Torbert)  Simp- 
son, of  Upper  Makefield,  born  June  20,  1806. 

He  engaged  in  farming  for  a  few  years  near  the  Ne- 
shaminy  in  his  native  county  and  then  went  to  Balti- 
more, Maryland,  where  he  engaged  in  the  mercantile 
business.  His  wife  died  June  24,  1844,  during  his  resi- 
dence in  Baltimore. 

In  1848  Mr.  Thompson  engaged  in  the  plumbing  busi- 
ness in  Philadelphia  in  connection  with  his  cousin  Hugh 
Thompson  and  subsequently  engaged  in  business  in  ^J- 
bany.  New  York.  In  May  1852,  Simpson  Thompson  sailed 
for  California,  whither  his  younger  brother,  Neely,  a 
"forty-niner"  had  preceded  him.  On  his  arrival  he 
settled  on  Soscol  Ranch,  located  by  his  brother,  and  for 
six  weeks  lived  under  an  immense  ash  tree,  still  standing 
in  1911  near  the  present  buildings,  cooking  his  own  meals 
and  doing  his  own  washing.  He  converted  the  Soscol 
ranch  into  a  fruit  farm  and  in  after  years  the  Thompson 
orchards  had  a  state-Avide  reputation.  Simpson  Thomp- 
son continued  to  reside  on  this  ranch  until  his  death  on 
Christmas  day  1888  at  the  ripe  old  age  of  eighty-five 
years.  He  was  universally  respected  by  all  who  knew 
him  as  a  man  of  sterling  worth.

ship  "Providence,"  a  trading  vessel  plying  between  the 
West  Indies,  of  which  he  was  a  native,  and  different

(97)  WILLIAM  NEELY  THOMPSON,  youngest  son 
of  Thomas  IMifflin  and  Elizabeth  (Wilson)  Thompson, 
born  in  Buckingham  township,  Bucks  county,  Pennsylva- 
nia, October  4,  1819,  died  in  the  city  of  Mexico,  October 
14,  1897.  He  went  to  California  in  1849  with  the  hun- 
dreds of  other  gold  seekers  known  to  this  day  as  "the 
forty-niners."  After  a  season  of  prospecting  for  gold 
with  indifferent  success  he  secured  the  grant  to  the 
famous  Soscol  ranch,  and  on  the  arrival  of  his  brother 
Simpson,  they  made  a  number  of  improvements  and  ope- 
rated it  together  for  a  number  of  years. 

Eventually,  however,  the  wanderlust  of  the  miner  got 
the  upper  hand  and  a  slight  difference  arising  between 
the  brothers,  he  sold  his  share  in  the  ranch  and  engaged 
in  the  lumber  business,  in  the  meantime  dabbling  in  min- 
ing interests.  He  acquired  quite  a  fortune  which  he  lost, 
however,  by  endorsing  for  a  friend,  from  whom  he  later 
acquired  a  mortgage  on  a  large  ranch  in  Chili,  said  to 
cover  an  area  equal  to  that  of  Bucks  county.  He  held 
his  claim  to  this  ranch  until  his  death. 

His  next  business  venture  was  quicksilver  mining  in 
Southern  California  and  gold  mining  in  Mexico.  About 
1858  he  acquired  title  to  the  New  Idria  Quick  Silver  Mines 
in  Monterey  county,  California  and  operated  them  for 
many  years.  He  was  forced  to  defend  his  title  to  these 
mines  for  years  through  State  and  Supreme  Courts  and 
the  United  States  Land  Office  and  even  in  the  United 
States  Congress,  against  an  infamous  scoundrel  named

William  MeGarrahan,  who  succeeded  in  corrupting 
many  county  clerks,  surveyor  generals,  judges  and 
members  of  both  houses  of  Congress.  William  Neely 
Thompson  finally  winning  out,  published  in  1875,  a  book 
known  as  the  "MeGarrahan  Claim,"  in  which  he  shows 
how  many  men  standing  high  in  public  life  were  cor- 
rupted by  IMcGarrahan.  A  copy  of  this  book  is  in  the 
library  of  the  Bucks  County  Historical  Society.  He 
eventually  sold  the  mine,  considering  it  worked  out,  al- 
though it  is  still  producing  $10,000  per  month  in  divi- 
dends, and  went  to  IMexico  where  he  became  proprietor 
of  the  famous  El  Oro  mines  over  which  he  also  had  some 
trouble,  and  he  died  in  Mexico  fighting  for  his  rights. 

In  1873,  Neely  Thompson  learned  that  the  Solebury 
Presbj^terian  Church,  where  his  ancestors  had  worshipped 
and  were  buried,  was  about  to  be  abandoned  for  want  of 
financial  and  numerical  support.  He  at  once  came  to 
the  rescue  and  after  joining  with  his  relatives  and  others 
in  a  revival  of  interest  in  the  old  church  which  added 
fifty  new  members,  he  rebuilt  the  church  structure,  and 
purchased  a  tract  of  land  which  he  added  to  the  cem- 
etery and  donated  to  the  church.  He  also  agreed  to  pay 
an  annual  amount  equal  to  that  raised  by  the  parishion- 
ers for  the  support  of  a  good  live  pastor.  It  was  through 
this  revival  and  rebuilding  that  the  church  came  to  be 
known  as  the  Thompson  Memorial  Church. 

William  Neely  Thompson  married  in  1854  Mary 
Amelia  (Freeman)  Mines,  daughter  of  M.  M.  and  Re-

a  young  man  and  learned  the  trade  of  a  printer.  He

Lewis  Thompson  and  his  wife  were  both  original  mem- 
bers of  the  Pennsylvania  Anti-Slavery  Society,  and  from 
1846  to  the  breaking  out  of  the  Civil  War,  Lewis  Thomp- 
son was  the  publisher  of  the  Pennsylvania  Freeman,  the 
weekly  organ  of  the  Anti-Slavery  Society  of  which  John 
G.  Whittier  had  been  for  some  years  editor.  He  suffered 
considerably  from  the  attacks  of  the  pro-slavery  party, 
his  office  being  frequently  threatened  by  mobs.  He  was 
in  Pennsylvania  Hall  when  it  was  burned  by  the  pro- 
slavery  mob  in  1828  and  his  house  was  a  depot  on  the 
underground  railroad  over  which  numerous  slaves  found 
their  way  to  freedom.  He  died  at  Beaufort,  South  Caro- 
lina, where  his  son  James  G.  Thompson  had  established  a 
newspaper,  August  26,  1866.  His  widow  survived  him 
nearly  thirty  years,  dying  at  the  house  of  her  son-in-law.

more,  Maryland.  On  his  graduation  in  1848,  he  located 
in  Shenandoah  county,  Virginia  and  began  the  practice 
of  his  profession,  his  professional  work  covering  that 
county  as  well  as  Rockingham,  Page  and  other  counties. 
When  the  Civil  War  broke  out  he  Avas  living  at  Harrison- 
burg, where  he  had  resided  since  1855.  His  family  had 
written  for  him  to  come  north  but  he  replied  that  he  had 
cast  his  lot  with  the  South  and  Avould  accept  the  same 
fate  that  befel  them.

August  26,  1894. 

A  contemporary  newspaper  said  of  Dr.  Martin  at  the 
time  of  his  death.  "Quiet  and  unassuming  by  nature,  he 
yet  possessed  ceaseless  energy.  A  deep  thinker,  he  had 
the  faculty  of  piercing  at  a  glance  the  shams  of  life,  and 
with  a  good  supply  of  hard  common  sense,  a  cool  head, 
and  the  rugged  honesty  of  the  old  fashioned  sort,  he  did 
his  duty  as  he  saw  it,  fearlessly."  He  was  a  consistent 
member  of  the  Presbyterian  Church. 

His  widow  survived  him,  dying  in  IMay  1908  at  the  age 
of  83  years.

In  1862,  he  was  promoted  to  the  rank  of  Colonel  and  in 
1863,  was  so  seriously  wounded  in  a  battle  near  White

with  the  rank  of  Colonel,  on  the  staff  of  General  Breck- 
euridge,  a  position  in  which  he  rendered  a  mixed  service 
of  medical  and  military  character  with  Breckenridge  in 
the  Kanawha  Valley  during  1864,  and  when  the  General 
was  called  to  another  department  Colonel  Barbee  was

publican ticket,  making  a  creditable  run,  it  being  gene- 
rally conceded  that  he  was  elected  though  his  opponent 
was  seated.  In  1881  in  connection  with  Hon.  J.  J. 
Woods,  then  Speaker  of  the  House  of  Delegates  of  West 
Virginia,  he  was  instrumental  in  the  passage  of  the  law 
regulating  the  practice  of  medicine  and  surgery  in  the

succeeded  to  the  control  of  the  old  homestead  farm  at 
his  father's  death,  and  to  the  title  thereof  at  the  death 
of  his  mother,  and  continued  to  reside  thereon  until  1906, 
when  he  removed  to  Wycombe,  where  he  still  resides, 
and  is  engaged  in  the  insurance  business.  He  was  a 
member  of  the  Board  of  Trustees  and  Directors  of  the 
Hughesian  Free  School  until  his  removal  from  Bucking- 
ham township ;  is  assistant  secretary  and  surveyor  of  the 
Farmers  and  Mechanics  Mutual  Fire  Insurance  Company

ed  in  stock  raising  until  1885,  when  after  heavy  losses 
due  to  the  great  drought,  he  sold  his  ranch  and  started 
Avith  the  remnant  of  his  herd  for  the  plains  on  the  edge 
of  the  Cherokee  strip.  When  the  "strip"  was  opened  up 
for  settlement,  he  was  one  of  the  successful  competitors 
in  the  famous  run  on  September  16,  1893,  on  his  famous 
Texas  pony  and  secured  a  choice  location,  which  he  sub- 
sequently sold  at  a  good  price. 

He  remained  on  his  ranch  in  Hale  county  for  several 
years  but  when  the  railroad  was  opened  through  Hale 
Center,  the  county  seat,  he  leased  his  ranch  and  engaged 
in  the  coal  and  grain  business  there  until  1913,  when  he 
left  that  business  in  charge  of  his  partner  and  returned

progressive  frontier  farmer.

(370)  JAMES  GORDON  THOIMPSON,  eldest  son  of 
Lewis  and  Rosanna  (Gordon)  Thompson,  born  in  Phila- 
delphia, January  9,  1836,  was  reared  and  educated  in  that 
city.  Having  chosen  the  profession  of  journalism,  he 
learned  early  in  life  the  mechanical  part  of  the  profes- 
sion in  his  father's  printing  office.  He  also  gained  a 
knowledge  of  the  intellectual  department  of  newspaper 
publishing  before  leaving  home.  Li  1859,  at  the  age  of 
twenty-four,  he  was  engaged  by  Alexander  Cummings, 
then  of  Philadelphia,  to  form  part  of  the  staff  of  the 
"New  York  World,"  which  he  was  launching  in  New  York 


FIFTH  GENERATION.  279 

City  a  first  class  morning  journal  to  be  sold  for  one  cent. 
James  Thompson  was  placed  in  charge  of  the  proof  room, 
acting  as  censor  of  both  reading  matter  and  advertise- 
ments, excluding  all  reprehensible  matter  from  the 
columns  as  it  was  to  be  a  clean  paper,  fit  to  be  read  aloud 
in  any  Christian  family.  This  position  he  held  until 
Fort  Sumter  was  fired  upon,  April  12,  1861. 

The  news  of  the  surrender  of  Fort  Sumter  reached  New 
York  on  April  14.  Mr.  Thompson  decided  at  once  to 
go  to  Washington  "on  his  own  hook"  as  he  expressed  it 
in  his  diary.  Receiving  in  the  World  office  the  call  of 
President  Lincoln  for  75,000  volunteers,  he  took  it  to  the 
editorial  room  and  read  it  aloud,  immediately  deciding  to 
enlist.  On  April  18,  he  left  for  Washington,  and  his 
diary  gives  a  graphic  account  of  the  trip,  and  the  condi- 
tion of  affairs  on  the  way  as  well  as  on  his  arrival  in 
Washington  on  April  20.  On  the  22nd  he  went  with  a 
detachment  of  soldiers  to  Baltimore  as  correspondent  of 
the  World  and  describes  in  the  pages  of  that  paper  the 
disturbance  and  excitement  in  that  city.  He  returned  to 
Washington  on  the  25th  and  decided  to  enlist  in  the  71st 
New  York  Regiment  on  its  arrival,  but  in  the  mean  time 
enlisted  in  Cassius  M.  Clay's  Battalion  and  was  mustered 
in  April  26,  1861.  On  May  4,  he  enlisted  in  Company  A, 
71st  New  York  Regiment,  for  three  months  and  after 
serving  on  board  vessels  patrolling  the  Potomac  went 
with  the  71st  and  Ellsworth's  Zouaves  to  Alexandria,  May 
25,  the  day  Captain  Ellsworth  was  killed  while  pulling 
down  the  Confederate  flag.  The  71st  Regiment  did  ex- 
cellent service  in  the  battle  of  Bull  Rmi,  in  Burnside's 
Brigade,  Hunter's  Division,  and  suffered  heavy  losses. 

His  term  of  enlistment  having  expired  July  20,  he  was 
mustered  out  July  28,  with  the  regiment  and  returned  to 
Philadelphia  AugvTst  1,  1861.  He  almost  immediately  de- 
veloped a  bad  case  of  typhoid  fever  which  kept  him  home 
until  January  1862,  when  he  returned  to  the  World  Office. 
In  a  short  time  he  discovered  that  his  eyesight  was  so  af- 
fected as  to  make  it  impossible  for  him  to  do  newspaper 
work,  and  he  suffered  several  months  of  enforced  idle- 
ness. In  July  1862  he  was  appointed  an  agent  of  the 
Treasury  Department  at  Port  Royal,  South  Carolina 
where  in  addition  to  his  official  duties  he  edited  an  army 
newspaper  called  the  "Free  South."  In  November  1864, 
the  United  States  troops  were  withdrawn  from  Port 
Royal  and  Beaufort.  Mr.  Thompson  raised  a  company 
of  cavalry  from  among  the  civilian  employes  of  the  Gov- 


280  THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 

ernment  and  was  appointed  its  Captain  by  IMajor  General 
Rufus  Saxton,  then  Military  Governor  of  South  Carolina 
and  Georgia.  The  company  was  mustered  into  service 
November  18,  1864,  and  was  constantly  on  duty  imtil  the 
arrival  of  General  0.  0.  Howard's  Division  of  Sherman's 
Army  in  January  1865.  They  had  furnished  their  own 
horses  and  served  without  pay  but  had  done  loyal  ser- 
vice in  preventing  Confederate  occiipation  of  the  island. 

Mr.  Thompson  took  an  active  part  in  the  reconstruc- 
tion of  South  Carolina  as  a  state,  being  a  member  of  the 
first  Constitutional  Convention  in  the  winter  of  1865, 
being  the  only  Northerner  and  ex-Union  soldier  in  the 
body.  He  was  elected  to  the  Legislature  from  the  Beau- 
fort District  December  1865,  but  did  not  qualify  as  he  felt 
sure  that  Congress  would  not  ratify  the  Columbia  Consti- 
tution. 

In  1868,  he  established  the  "Beaufort  Republican,"  and 
afterwards  the  "Port  Royal  Commercial,"  both  of  which 
became  prominent  factors  in  the  politics  of  the  state  in 
the  reconstruction  period. 

In  1870,  Mr.  Thompson  was  appointed  Commissioner  of 
the  United  States  Courts  in  South  Carolina,  a  position  he 
held  for  ten  years  to  the  satisfaction  of  the  United  States 
Judges.  He  was  admitted  to  the  bar  as  an  Attorney  in 
the  United  States  Courts,  and  had  many  vital  questions 
to  handle.  During  the  exciting  political  campaign  of 
1870,  1872,  1874  and  1876,  he  was  editor  of  the  "Union 
Herald,"  the  only  Republican  newspaper  published  south 
of  the  Potomac. 

In  1878,  he  left  South  Carolina  and  for  two  years  was 
an  agent  in  the  Quartermaster's  Department  in  Kansas 
and  Colorado.  In  1880  he  went  to  Washington,  D.  C,  as 
editor  of  the  "National  Republican"  but  soon  left  it  and 
became  editor  of  "The  Capitol."  He  subsequently  served 
as  an  official  of  the  Post  Office  Department,  but  never 
lost  his  love  for  newspaper  work,  and  was  a  constant 
correspondent  of  the  leading  New  York  and  Washington 
journals. 

He  was  a  delegate  to  the  Republican  National  Conven- 
tions of  1860,  1864,  1868,  and  1876,  and  was  an  im- 
portant factor  of  the  Convention  of  1884,  though  not  a 
delegate.  He  died  in  Washington,  D.  C,  August  6,  1901. 
His  remains  were  cremated  and  the  ashes  interred  in  the 
Thompson  Memorial  Church  in  Solebury,  Bucks  county, 
Pennsylvania. 

He  married  October  15,  1863,  Elizabeth  II,  Wattson,

She  was  born  October  24,  1842,  and  still  survives  him,

(371)  MAJOR  LEWIS  TAPPAN  THOMPSON,  son  of 
Lewis  and  Rosanna  (Gordon)  Thompson,  born  in  Phila- 
delphia July  25,  1838.  He  was  educated  for  a  business 
career,  and  at  the  outbreak  of  the  Civil  War  was  cashier 
and  bookkeeper  for  P.  Waples  and  Company,  of  Phila- 
delphia. On  May  4,  1861,  he  set  out  for  Washington, 
where  he  enlisted  with  his  brother  James  G.  in  Com- 
pany A,  71st  Regiment  New  York  Volunteers.  On  ac- 
count of  his  delicate  health,  he  was  one  of  those  selected 
from  the  regiment  to  remain  in  Washington  to  guard  the 
Navy  Yard,  but  he  protested  so  strongly  that  he  was  al- 
lowed to  go  to  the  front  with  the  regiment,  with  which 
he  served  until  it  was  mustered  out.  He  was  then  ap- 
pointed aide  on  the  staff  of  General  John  C.  Fremont, 
with  rank  of  Lieutenant,  and  went  on  duty  in  Missouri. 
When  Fremont  was  deprived  of  his  command,  Lieutenant 
Thompson  joined  General  Lane's  command  as  a  volun- 
teer and  served  for  a  time  as  Adjutant  General  of  Lane 's 
Brigade.  He  was  subsequently  appointed  Captain  of  a 
Company  in  the  Third  Kansas  Cavalry,  and  passed 
through  the  hard  service  of  border  warfare  in  the  winter 
of  1861-2.  For  signal  bravery  and  generalship  on  an 
expedition  into  Missouri  for  forage,  he  was  recommended 
by  General  Lane  to  the  War  Department  for  promotion, 
and  received  the  appointment  of  Lieutenant  in  the  Second 
United  States  Cavalry  and  was  assigned  to  duty  on  the 
staff  of  General  Blunt  as  dispersing  and  mustering  officer. 
He  participated  in  the  campaign  leading  up  to  and  in- 
cluding the  battle  of  Pea  Ridge. 

In  May  1862,  he  was  ordered  to  join  Company  C  of  the 
Second  United  States  Cavalry  on  the  Potomac,  and  from 
that  date  to  the  surrender  at  Appotamox,  participated 


282  THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 

with  the  Army  of  the  Potomac  in  the  main  events  of  the 
war,  many  times  receiving  honorable  mention  for  dis- 
tinguished services  and  bravery  in  action,  by  his  com- 
manding officers,  and  was  brevetted  Captain  for  his  dis- 
tinguisHed  services  at  Middleboro.  He  was  captured 
July  2,  1862,  at  the  battle  of  Gettysburg,  while  serving 
as  Inspector  General  of  General  Merrit's  Brigade,  by  a 
detachment  of  Confederate  Troops  in  United  States  uni- 
form, which  they  had  stolen  at  the  sacking  of  Carlisle. 
He  was  carried  to  the  notorious  Libby  Prison,  from  which 
he  was  transferred  to  Macon,  Georgia,  in  June  1864,  and 
in  July  to  Charlestown,  South  Carolina,  where  he  re- 
mained until  a  special  parole  was  arranged  for  him  by  his 
brother-in-law,  General  Rufus  Saxton,  when  he  was 
granted  three  months  leave  of  absence.  After  this  he 
went  on  duty  as  recruiting  and  mustering  officer  in  Phil- 
adelphia, where  he  served  until  the  close  of  the  war. 

On  September  5,  1865,  he  was  brevetted  Major  for  dis- 
tinguished services  during  the  war.  At  the  close  of  the 
war,  he  was  appointed  Indian  Agent  in  Colorado  in  which 
position,  and  as  military  aide  to  Governor  Cummings,  he 
served  for  one  year.  For  nine  years  from  1867  to  1876, 
he  was  on  frontier  duty  with  his  regiment,  suppressing 
Indian  disturbances  and  guarding  work  on  the  Pacific 
Railways  which  were  then  building,  participating  in  many 
bloody  encounters  with  the  savages  and  having  a  number 
of  hair  breadth  escapes  from  death  at  their  hands. 

In  the  fall  of  1875,  Major  Thompson  was  granted  six 
months  leave  of  absence,  having  long  suffered  from  the 
effects  of  his  prison  experience,  and  spent  the  time  with 
his  brother,  James,  at  Columbia,  South  Carolina,  but  he 
rejoined  his  Company  at  Fort  Ellis,  Montana,  in  1876,  in 
time  to  take  part  in  the  great  campaign  against  the  Sioux, 
and  narrowly  escaped  the  fate  of  General  Custer  and 
his  command,  when  they  were  surrounded  and  massacred 
by  Sitting  Bull  and  his  band.  Major  Thompson's  letter 
to  his  brother  James,  predicted  the  disaster  several  weeks 
before  it  happened,  by  reason  of  Custer  having  ignored 
the  advice  of  tried  veterans  who  had  scouted  over  the 
same  ground  for  six  years,  and  rushed  rashly  to  his  doom. 
Major  Thompson's  squadron  was  with  General  Gibbon's 
command  which  followed  Custer,  who  by  his  impetuous 
advance  struck  the  Sioux  without  waiting  for  Gibbons, 
who  reached  the  scene  after  Custer's  death. 

The  arduous  campaign  was  too  much  for  Major  Thomp- 
son in  his  enfeebled  condition.     His  surgeon  had  reported 


FIFTH  GENERATION.  283 

him  unable  to  endure  the  campaign,  and  he  was  directed 
to  remain  in  command  at  Fort  Ellis,  but  he  succeeded  in 
persuading  his  superior  officers  to  order  him  to  march. 
He  was  stricken  down  in  the  wilderness  and  was  carried 
for  miles  on  a  litter  at  the  heels  of  a  mule,  along  the 
dusty  trail  of  the  army  in  pursuit  of  the  enemy,  and  died 
July  19,  1876,  less  than  a  month  after  the  Custer  mas- 
sacre and  was  buried  on  a  high  terrace  overlooking  the 
Yellowstone  River  about  one-half  mile  from  the  mouth 
of  the  Big  Horn  River.  His  body  was  taken  up  by  his 
brother  Lieutenant  Charles  Thompson  of  the  Fifth  United 
States  Infantrj^  a  year  later  ancl  taken  to  Fort  Leaven- 
worth, Kansas,  from  whence  it  was  shipped  home  and 
buried  at  the  Thompson  Memorial  Church,  Solebury, 
Bucks  county,  Pennsylvania.     He  was  unmarried. 

(372)  MATILDA  GORDON  THOMPSON,  only  sur- 
viving daughter  of  Lewis  and  Rosanna  (Gordon)  Thomp- 
son, born  in  Philadelphia,  November  22,  1840.  graduated 
with  distinction  from  the  Normal  School  of  Philadelphia, 
and  was  selected  as  teacher  of  English  by  the  head  of  the 
First  State  Normal  School,  Millersville,  Pennsylvania, 
but  did  not  accept  the  offer.  She  was  married  March  11, 
1863,  to  Major  General  Rufus  Saxton,  and  remained  with 
him  in  the  field  during  the  remainder  of  the  war,  at 
Beaufort,  ]\Iorris  Island,  and  Charleston,  South  Carolina, 
and  after  the  close  of  the  war  followed  him  to  his  differ- 
ent posts  of  command,  at  Atlanta,  Georgia ;  Buffalo,  New 
York;  Philadelphia;  Fort  Leavenworth,  Kansas;  the 
Presido,  San  Francisco,  California;  Portland,  Oregon,

General  Rufus  Saxton  was  born  in  Deerfield,  Massa- 
chusetts, in  1824,  and  was  a  son  of  Jonathan  and  Miranda 
(Wright)  Saxton.  He  graduated  at  West  Point  in  1849, 
and  was  appointed  Lieutenant  of  Artillery.  In  1853  he 
was  assigned  to  duty  on  the  Northern  Pacific  Railroad 
exploration  and  survey. 

From  this  time  until  the  opening  of  the  Civil  War  he 
was  engaged  in  the  Coast  Survey,  and  was  instructor  in 
tactics  at  West  Point.  In  1861,  he  was  Chief  Quarter- 
master on  the  staff  of  General  Lyon  in  his  Missouri  Cam- 
paign, afterward  filling  the  same  position  under  General 
McClellan  in  Western  Virginia,  and  General  Sherman  in 
his  Port  Royal  expedition. 

In  May  1862,  Brigadier  General  Saxton  was  appointed 
Military  Governor  of  the  Department  of  the  South,  and

on  his  way  to  Beaufort,  South  Carolina,  the  vessel  on 
which  he  and  his  staff  were  passengers,  was  wrecked  off 
Cape  Hatteras,  and  they  were  carried  by  a  passing  steam- 
er to  Fortress  Monroe  and  returned  to  Washington,  where 
he  was  summoned  to  the  War  Department  and  Secretary 
Stanton  gave  him  the  following  order : — 

War  Department,  May  24,  1862. 
General  Saxton: — 

You  will  please  proceed  with  the  troops  from  Wash- 
ington to  Harper's  Ferry,  and  operate  with  them  as  cir- 
cumstances may  require,   assuming  command  of  them. 

EDWIN  M.   STANTON,  Secretary  of  War. 

General  Saxton  remarked  that  he  had  just  been  ship- 
wrecked and  had  neither  sabre,  staff,  nor  mount,  but  that 
he  would  go  to  Harper's  Ferry,  as  soon  as  possible.  Presi- 
dent Lincoln,  who  was  present  in  the  Secretary's  office 
said,  "Dismount  the  first  cavalryman  you  meet  and  take 
his  horse  and  sabre."  Within  an  hour  he  was  on  his  way 
to  Harper's  Ferry,  where  he  found  a  general  panic  over 
an  expected  attack  by  Stonewall  Jackson's  army.  He  at 
once  took  command  and  after  inspecting  the  surrounding 
heights,  determined  to  establish  a  heavy  battery  on  Mary- 
land Heights,  2000  feet  above  sea  level.  The  heavy  guns 
were  dragged  to  their  positions  by  ropes  and  Battery 
Stanton  commanded  all  approaches  to  Harper's  Ferry  be- 
fore the  arrival  of  the  enemy,  by  reason  of  which  Jack- 
son's attack  with  a  vastly  superior  force  was  successfullj 
repulsed.  President  Lincoln  thanked  General  Saxton  in 
person,  and  he  was  awarded  a  medal  of  honor  by  Con- 
gress, "for  distinguished  service  and  good  conduct  in 
the  defense  of  Harper's  Ferry,  May  26,  1862,  against 
the  rebel  command  of  General  Stonewall  Jackson." 
Secretary  Stanton  also  telegraphed  General  Saxton, 
saying  he  reserved  to  say  personally  what  he  felt  concern- 
ing the  important  service  rendered  the  Government,  and 
on  June  17,  1862,  sent  him  the  following  letter : — 

Brigadier  General  Rufus  Saxton:  — 

The  thanks  of  this  Department  are  cordially  tendered 
you  for  your  late  able  and  gallant  defense  of  Harper's 
Ferry  against  the  rebel  force  under  command  of  General 
Jackson.  You  were  placed  in  command  of  that  point 
at  a  moment  of  extreme  danger,  and  under  circum- 
stances of  extraordinary  difficulty. 

By  your  skill  and  gallantry,  great  service  was  ren- 
dered to  the  country,  which  I  feel  it  the  duty  of  this 
department  to  acknowledge  and  place  on  record,  as- 
suring you  at  the  same  time  of  my  personal  confidence 
and  regard.  Yours  truly 

EDWIN  M.  STANTON,  Secretary  of   War 


FIFTH  GENERATION.  285 

General  Saxton  was  reappointed  Military  Governor  of 
the  Department  of  the  South  and  also  superintendent  of 
the  recruiting  of  colored  troops.  He  had  command  of  the 
Tenth  Army  Corps  in  the  Beaufort  District,  and  of  the 
forces  on  Morris  and  John's  Islands  in  the  attack  on 
Charleston.  He  was  also  appointed  Commissioner  for  the 
Freedraan's  Bureau  for  South  Carolina,  Georgia,  and 
Florida  until  the  end  of  the  war. 

After  the  war  he  was  Chief  Quartermaster  of  the  De- 
partment of  the  South,  of  the  Department  of  the  Lakes, 
of  the  Department  of  the  Missouri,  of  the  Columbia,  and 
of  the  Military  Division  of  the  Pacific.  He  was  succes- 
sively bre vetted  Major,  Lieutenant  Colonel,  Colonel, 
Brigadier  General  and  Major  General.  After  forty  three 
years  of  active  service,  he  was  retired  by  action  of  law 
in  1892.  He  died  in  Washington,  D.  C,  February  23, 
1908,  at  the  age  of  eighty  five  years.  He  had  no  child- 
ren. 

(373)  THOMAS  NEELY  THOMPSON,  third  son  of 
Lewis  and  Rosanna  (Gordon)  Thompson,  born  in  Phila- 
delphia, July  28,  1843,  was  in  St.  Louis,  Missouri,  in  1861, 
when  the  call  for  troops  to  put  down  the  rebellion  was 
made.  He  enlisted  as  a  private  in  Colonel  Frank  Blair's 
Regiment,  afterwards  the  Eighth  Missouri  Volunteers, 
in  which  he  served  for  one  year  as  a  sergeant.  He  was 
then  promoted  to  the  rank  of  First  Lieutenant  in  the 
Eighth  Llissouri  Regiment  and  was  later  brevetted  Cap- 
tain for  courage  and  gallant  conduct  on  the  field. 

In  January  1863,  he  was  appointed  Captain  in  the  sec- 
ond South  Carolina  Colored  Regiment,  afterward  the  34th 
United  States  Regiment,  and  took  part  in  several  success- 
ful expeditions  against  the  enemy  on  the  coast  of  South 
Carolina,  Georgia  and  Florida. 

On  June  2,  1863,  his  command  was  landed  at  Field's 
Point,  on  the  Combachee  and  held  their  position  for  six 
hours  in  the  face  of  a  fierce  attack  of  the  enemy  in  vastly 
superior  numbers.  He  participated  in  the  occupation  of 
Jacksonville,  Florida,  and  in  Birney's  expedition  up  the 
St.  John's  River.  His  Regiment  also  saw  active  service 
in  the  siege  of  Charleston,  on  Folly,  Johns  and  Morris 
Islands;  also  under  Seymour  and  Foster  at  Honey  Hill, 
South  Carolina.  At  the  close  of  the  war  he  was  mustered 
out  with  impaired  health. 

The  interval  between  the  end  of  the  war  and  his  final 
breakdown  was  filled  with  enterprise  and  adventure. 
His  love  of  change  of  scene  and  new  experiences  and  ad- 


286  THE  THOMPSON  FAMILY. 

ventures  amounted  to  a  fault  in  the  eyes  of  persons  of 
more  comservative  temperaments.  He  enlisted  in  the 
United  States  Marines  in  order  to  go  around  the  world 
to  see  what  it  was  like;  was  wrecked  on  U.  S.  S.  Sacre- 
mento,  when  she  was  lost  in  the  Indian  Ocean  off  Oscana- 
da  Harbor  and  with  other  survivors  made  his  way  across 
India  on  foot.  He  had  scarcely  reached  home  after  this 
experience  when  he  joined  a  Cuban  Revolutionary  expe- 
dition, and  with  his  companions  was  saved  from  the 
Spanish  garrote  by  being  cast  away  on  one  of  the  Florida 
Keys,  from  which  after  three  days  exposure,  he  was  pick- 
ed up  and  carried  ashore  by  a  passing  steamer,  being  put 
ashore  without  hat  or  shoes.  Some  Cubans  took  care  of 
him  for  a  day  or  two  when  he  joined  a  party  of  hmiters 
organized  by  Choteau  to  go  to  the  far  west  after  buffalo 
hides. 

In  1878,  he  was  editing  a  paper  in  Indian  Territory, 
and  printing  the  laws  in  Choctaw.  He  urged  the  division 
of  the  Indian  lands  in  severalty  instead  of  being  held  by 
the  tribe  as  common  property.  The  heads  of  the  "Blan- 
ket" Indians  demanded  his  expulsion  and  he  was  arrested 
under  orders  of  Carl  Schurz,  Secretary  of  the  Interior, 
and  transported  with  his  newspaper  material  in  a  box 
car  across  the  lines  into  Kansas.  He  always  found 
friends  who  loved  him  for  his  sunny  temper  and  his  readi- 
ness to  turn  his  hand  to  any  pursuit  that  provided  bread 
and  new  experience.  He  was  granted  a  pension  for  dis- 
abilities resulting  from  his  war  experiences  in  1880  and 
died  in  Cincinnatti,  Ohio,  after  a  prolono^ed  illness,  Janu- 
ary 2,  1897.  He  married  April  22,  1864,  Mrs.  Catalina 
Flagg.     They  had  no  children. 

(374)  CHARLES  BURLEIGH  THOMPSON,  young- 
est son  of  Lewis  and  Rosanna  (Gordon)  Thompson,  born 
in  Philadelphia,  Pennsylvania,  July  30,  1846,  was  a  stu- 
dent in  Philadelphia  High  School  when  war  broke  out 
with  the  South,  not  yet  fifteen  years  of  age,  but  he  ar- 
dently desired  to  join  his  brothers  in  the  army.  In  re- 
sponse to  a  letter  to  Colonel  Wm.  I.  Palmer,  in  command 
of  the  Anderson  Cavalry,  offering  "Charlie"  a  position 
on  his  staff  to  look  after  his  papers,  etc.,  the  boy  was 
mustered  into  Anderson's  Cavalry  at  Carlisle,  Pennsyl- 
vania, June  18,  1862,  but  on  account  of  his  age  and  size, 
was  discharged  October  18,  1862. 

Failing  to  get  into  the  Army,  Charles  B.  Thompson,  re- 
sumed his  studies,  and  the  care  of  his  father  who  was  in 
feeble  health.     He  acquired  a  good  education  and  became 


FIFTH  GENERATION.  287 

a  successful  and  alert  business  man.  In  the  intervals 
of  a  business  occupation  he  studied  law  and  was  admitted 
to  the  Philadelphia  Bar,  June  1881. 

On  January  9,  1877,  he  was  appointed  Second  Lieuten< 
ant  in  the  Fifth  United  States  Infantry  commanded  by 
Colonel  Nelson  A.  Miles.  He  reported  at  once  to  Maj. 
Genl.  Jefferson  G.  Davis,  Colonel  commanding  the  23rd 
Infantry  at  Fort  Leavenworth,  Kansas,  and  was  assigned 
for  temporary  duty  with  Companj^  D,  commanded  by 
Captain  Thomas  M.  R.  Smith.  This  company  was  in  the 
field  against  hostile  Indians  and  he  applied  for  orders  to 
join  it.  After  considerable  correspondence  with  head- 
quarters, he  was  ordered  by  General  Sheridan  to  join  the 
company,  July  1st  following.  Being  advised  by  his 
brother-in-law,  General  Rufus  Saxton,  and  General  Rob- 
ert Williams,  to  proceed  to  join  his  company  in  the  field 
at  once,  he  left  Fort  Leavenworth  and  reached  Bis- 
marck, March  28,  1877,  and  made  the  trip  of  237  miles  to 
Fort  Buford  in  a  wagon  train  over  the  northern  plains 
in  the  sleet  and  snow  of  a  very  inclement  spring.  He 
was  made  field  Quartermaster  of  the  expedition  and  reach- 
ed Colonel  Miles'  command  on  Tonque  River,  160  miles 
up  the  Yellowstone,  joining  his  command  May  5,  1877. 

He  participated  in  the  fight  of  Little  Rosebud,  on  May 
22,  and  was  placed  in  command  of  Company  F,  which  was 
made  part  of  a  Battalion  of  mounted  infantry  to  guard 
the  frontier  and  prevent  the  Indians,  who  had  retreated 
to  the  British  possessions  after  the  Chester  massacre, 
from  entering  the  United  States  and  participated  in  the 
continuous  hard  scouting  necessary  to  accomplish  the 
purpose  for  which  the  "dragoon"  battalion  was  created, 
from  June  14  to  September  29,  1877.  On  the  latter  date 
he  was  detached  from  the  mounted  battalion  and  order- 
ed to  Fort  Ellis,  Montana,  a  distance  of  568  miles,  to 
bring  provisions.  He  suffered  many  privations  and  nar- 
row escapes  from  hostile  savages.  On  December  26, 
1877,  he  again  joined  the  mounted  battalion  with  com- 
mand of  his  old  company,  and  resumed  the  arduous 
scouting  duty,  driving  back  numerous  bands  of  Sioux,  un- 
til January  28,  1878,  when  he  was  thrown  from  his  horse 
on  a  steep  hillside  and  badly  injured.  He  was  first  sent 
to  Fort  Keogh  for  treatment,  and  his  injuries  proving 
quite  serious,  he  was  given  eighteen  months  sick  leave, 
at  the  end  of  which  he  returned  to  the  service.  On  March 
14,  1882,  he  was  promoted  to  First  Lieutenant,  which  po- 
sition he  held  until  October  19,  1885,  when  he  was  ap-

pointed  Regimental  Quartermaster  of  his  regiment.  On 
September  30,  1889,  he  was  relieved  and  assigned  to 
Company  G,  at  Ringold  Barracks,  Texas,  where  he  was 
Post  Quartermaster,  Adjutant  and  Commissary.  In  Feb- 
ruary 1891,  he  was  ordered  on  duty  at  the  Infantry  and 
Calvary  School  at  Fort  Leavenworth,  and  in  July  trans- 
ferred to  Jackson  Barracks,  New  Orleans. 

On  November  2,  1891,  he  was  appointed  by  President 
Harrison,  Captain  and  Assistant  Quartermaster,  LTnited 
States  Army,  and  on  December  17,  1891,  reported  for  duty 
at  Washington,  D.  C.  From  February  24,  1892  to  Dec- 
ember 12,  1894,  he  had  charge  of  the  erection  of  the  new 
post  at  Madison  Barracks,  New  York,  at  the  end  of  which 
he  was  given  six  months  sick  leave. 

On  April  15,  1895,  he  was  put  in  charge  of  the  con- 
struction of  the  Post  at  Little  Rock,  Arkansas,  which  he 
completed  in  November  1895.  After  another  term  of 
construction  duty  at  Columbia  Barracks,  Ohio,  he  was 
Post  Quartermaster  at  the  Presido,  San  Francisco,  from 
November  1,  1897,  to  June  21,  1898,  when  he  was  made 
Chief  Quartermaster  of  the  Department  of  California, 
with  headquarters  at  San  Francisco,  which  duty  he  per- 
formed throughout  the  war  with  Spain,  as  well  as  that 
of  Post  Quartermaster  at  the  Presido.  As  a  recognition 
of  his  services,  he  was  appointed  Major,  and  Chief 
Quartermaster  of  Volunteers.  The  letters  and  telegrams 
to  the  War  Department  from  high  officials,  both  military 
and  civil,  recommending  this  appointment  as  a  recogni- 
tion of  his  services  and  ability,  show  a  high  appreciation 
of  his  character  and  abilities  by  those  with  whom  he  came 
in  contact.  He  died  August  17,  1901.  He  was  unmar- 
ried.

New  York  and  Vera  Cruz,  Mexico.  Returning  to  Phil- 
adelphia from  the  latter  place  in  September  1914,  he 
spent  the  winter  with  his  parents  at  3405  North  Seven- 
teenth street.  On  February  5,  1915,  with  a  companion 
named  Joseph  Guilfoil,  of  Roxborough,  noticing  a  motor 
boat  in  the  flooded  waters  of  the  Schuylkill  in  which 
they  thought  there  was  a  man  who  had  lost  control  of  the 
boat,  he  secured  a  boat  and  went  to  the  rescue.  They 
reached  the  boat  and  finding  no  one  in  it,  started  to  re- 
turn, but  their  boat  was  overturned  and  Thompson 
was  drowned,  his  companion  having  a  narrow  escape. 
Thompson's  body  was  found  February  12th  among  the 
rocks  where  the  boat  capsized,  and  was  buried  at  New- 
town Cemetery,  Bucks  county,  February  15,  1915.  He 
was  a  member  of  a  canoe  club  and  very  popular  among 
his  associates ;  a  young  man  of  much  promise.
